SEALANTS

SEALANTS

Seal Out Cavities and Tooth Decay

Dental sealants are a great tool for preventing cavities in hard-to-reach areas. They are typically recommended for children between ages 6 and 14 but patients of virtually all ages can benefit from their application.

Dental sealants are made from specially designed dental resin or plastic. They are carefully applied in liquid form onto the teeth in a thin layer. The sealant then quickly hardens and bonds directly onto the tooth, sometimes with the aid of a curing light. This process creates a strong seal on the tooth that acts as a protective barrier on the tooth enamel and prevents cavities and tooth decay.

After the sealants are in place, they will be checked during every check-up appointment. Sealants can remain effective at preventing cavities and tooth decay for as long as 10 years.
