Preventative Care – Is a Teeth Sealant Right for You?

dca-blog_dental-sealants-protected-tooth

Your molars and premolars have rough, uneven surfaces with many small grooves and depressions. Although toothbrush bristles can easily remove plaque and food from smooth teeth, they can’t reach into the nooks and crannies of your back teeth. The problem leaves molars more vulnerable to tooth decay and cavities. Fortunately, dental sealants can help. Your dentist can seal teeth quickly and painlessly. Once the thin layer of plastic resin hardens, it provides a tough shield to seal teeth away from the elements that cause decay.

Should I Consider Dental Sealants?

If you seal teeth away from plaque and prevent decay, you’ll save time and money by avoiding more costly dental treatments like root canals, fillings, and crowns.

Who Benefits from a Tooth Sealant?

Children, teens, and adults who are prone to dental decay can benefit from sealants. Small children should have them applied as soon as their first permanent teeth erupt.

Are Dental Sealants Applied to Baby Teeth?

If your child’s baby teeth have pits and grooves, sealing them may be a good option. Baby teeth are important for proper spacing of permanent teeth, so it’s important to prevent them from falling out early.

What Happens if a Teeth Sealant Covers a Cavity?

A teeth sealant will provide a barrier that doesn’t allow bacteria or acids to access the cavity, so the decay will not progress.

How Long Do Dental Sealants Last?

With regular care and minor repairs as necessary, dental sealants can effectively seal teeth for up to ten years.

Are Sealants Covered by Insurance?

Preventative treatments like sealants are covered by some dental insurance plans. Check with your insurance company to be sure.
