Prevent the Problem of Cavities with Dental Sealants

Cavities can strike anyone at any time. In fact, research has found that people have a 95 percent chance of developing cavities at some point during their lifetimes. Learn why family dentistry experts say dental sealants are your best decay defense.

Get Decay Defense with Dental Sealants

Your family dentistry practitioner can apply these thin, plastic coatings to the chewing surfaces of molars to keep food and plaque from collecting in the crevices and causing cavities. While sealants have become hugely popular as preventative measures against cavities, they were created more than 50 years ago and only became mainstays of family dentistry in the 1970s. The best dentists in Orlando provide this proven protection.

Best Candidates for Treatment

Studies show that more than 65 percent of cavities occur in the grooves of a child’s newly erupted teeth due to trapped food and plaque, making children the ideal candidates for sealants. Experts in family dentistry also say that dental sealants are most effective when applied to a tooth as soon it appears and before decay has had a chance to form, which is why sealants are best for a child’s permanent first molars that come in around age six. Sealants are also an excellent idea for the second molars that emerge at about age 12. Adults can benefit from dental sealants, too, because even when placed on teeth with minimal existing decay, sealants have been shown to prevent further damage.

Painless Procedure for Protection

Getting dental sealants is a quick, painless, and completely comfortable process. First, a liquid mixture is placed over the chewing surfaces of the teeth and allowed to dry for 15 seconds. Then, that solution is rinsed away and the sealant material is placed on that area and hardened with a special light. The sealant is now solid and should last for many years. But dental sealants can chip or fall off over time, and if this happens, they will need to be replaced to preserve decay protection. That’s why dentists always evaluate the condition of dental sealants during regular check-ups to ensure that they are still effective. According to the best dentists in Orlando, insurance will hopefully cover the procedure, but the decay protection of sealants can save the cost and concern of later dental intervention for cavities.
