Examine How Effective Dental Sealants are for Children

dca_blog_dental-sealants

With more and more children getting dental sealants today, you probably want to know how effective they really are. Find out about the effectiveness of this protective dental measure.

Evidence of the Effectiveness of Dental Sealants

Family dentistry experts have evaluated more than 15 years of research and concluded that dental sealants are a highly effective way to protect children from cavities. Studies showed that tooth sealants offered 100 percent cavity protection and were an important part of a child’s healthy dental development. Plus, these studies clearly demonstrated the effectiveness of dental sealants against tooth decay, regardless of whether or not children had the additional cavity protection of fluoridated water.

All Tooth Sealants are Not Equal in Effectiveness

Dental sealants aren’t simply a one-kind-fits-all solution. Instead, there are three types of dental sealants available from practically every affordable dentist in Orlando. The sealants are classified by the way they are hardened, which can be self-cured, ultraviolet light-cured, and visible light-cured. Research showed that self-cured tooth sealants are slightly more effective than ultraviolet light-cured sealants. While the increased effectiveness of self-cured sealants was shown over a two-year span, further family dentistry research would be needed to establish any long-term difference in efficacy.

How to Keep Dental Sealants Effective

Did you know that dental sealants can provide protection for up 10 years with proper care? Yet sometimes, they become chipped or cracked, reintroducing the risk of cavities. Luckily, tooth sealants can be easily repaired or replaced for a very low cost. And by having an affordable dentist in Orlando fix faulty dental sealants as soon as they require repair, their effectiveness can be fully restored to continue their cavity protection.
