Why Teeth Sealants Will Make You Smile

dca-blog_dental-sealants-protected-tooth

If you’re trying to prevent the pain and problems of cavities, then dental sealants will make you happy. Teeth sealants are a popular preventative measure that will ease your mind and please your dentist.

Purpose of Protection

Practicing good dental hygiene will help remove the food and germs that often get trapped in teeth and lead to decay, but it can be difficult to remove every bit of bacteria. But teeth sealants are able to keep these particles far from teeth by forming a protective seal around teeth that prevents plaque from forming.

Details on Dental Sealants

Teeth sealants are very thin plastic coatings that get brushed onto the chewing surfaces of teeth. This covers every groove and gap to protect them tooth decay.

Crowd for Care

Kids and teenagers are the top candidates for teeth sealants because decay often develops in the grooves of pre-molars and molars. This is why children should get dental sealants on their permanent teeth as soon as these teeth come in. But babies also can benefit by getting a head start on healthy permanent teeth, while adults will appreciate the protection because decay can strike at any age.

Length of Strength

Dental sealants can last for up to ten years, but their strength can be diminished with daily wear-and-tear. However, sealants can be reapplied once they start to wear to restore complete protection. Ask your dentist in Orlando to regularly check your dental sealants to see if they need to be reapplied.

Steps for Sealants

Getting dental sealants is an easy and painless procedure that takes only minutes. Your dentist or hygienist applies the dental sealant by following these four simple steps:

  1. The tooth is thoroughly cleaned and dried
  2. An acid solution is applied to the tooth help the sealant stick to its surface.
  3. The tooth is then rinsed and dried.
  4. The dental sealant is brushed on the tooth and it hardens almost instantly, yet sometimes a special curing light is used to secure the sealant.

Cost of Care

When dental insurance companies realized that dental sealants were a preventative measure that could reduce later treatment expenses, many started to cover the cost. But since coverage often depends on your plan and level of insurance, ask your insurance provider.
