Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings painted typically on premolars and molars to prevent cavities and other forms of tooth decay. They act as a protective coating for areas of the tooth vulnerable to plaque buildup. Almost all of our patients can greatly benefit from dental sealants including children, teenagers, and adults without previous decay or dental fillings.
Dental sealant treatments are noninvasive, painless, and quick. Generally, the application process for sealants goes as follows:
1. The first step involves a thorough cleaning to remove any buildup and plaque. The tooth surface needs to be completely cleaned before the sealant can be placed.
2. Next, your dentist will fully dry each tooth and special absorbent material will be placed around the tooth to keep it dry during the rest of the process.
3. The third step includes applying an acid solution to the teeth to help the sealant bond to the teeth.
4. Then your dentists will rinse and dry each tooth again.
5. Lastly, the tooth enamel will be covered in a special sealant that takes about one to three minutes to dry and harden.
After your sealants have been applied, certain bacteria and acids that cause enamel damage will no longer be able to create cavities. These treatments are extremely safe and cause no side effects. After your dental sealant has been applied, you can go back to your normal everyday routine. You can eat one to two hours after your appointment.
Dental sealants can save you time, money, and future dental complications. They have the ability to protect your teeth from plaque and reduce the risk of needing more advanced procedures. Dental sealants can prevent cavities and the need for root canals, tooth extractions, dental crowns, and dental bridges. They can also reduce the risk of developing gum diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis.
Dental sealants last for about four years and can be easily replaced. During biannual checkups, your dentist will make sure your sealants are still intact and haven’t been damaged. To avoid dental sealant damage, avoid chewing on ice, clenching your jaw, biting your nails, and maintaining proper oral hygiene.
Dental professionals including dentists and dental hygienists have the qualifications to apply for dental sealants. If you are interested in this treatment, make sure to talk to your dentist during your next cleaning. Daniel Dental Studio happily provides our patients with dental sealants in Norwalk, CT.
