How Dental Sealants Save Smiles

Dental sealants are very thin coatings made of a special resin that get brushed onto teeth to protect them from cavities. Family dentistry specialists apply tooth sealants on the premolars and molars, which have deep nooks and crannies on the chewing surfaces of teeth where bacteria and decay often get trapped. Since these particles are hard to remove with a toothbrush, they develop into cavities. While family dentistry specialists usually recommend tooth sealants to kids and teens between the ages of four and 15, more and more adults at high risk for cavities are also enjoying the protection of dental sealants today.

What’s Involved in the Easy, Effective Procedure

Believe it or not, applying dental sealants is one of the fastest and simplest procedures performed at a family dentistry practice. An affordable dentist in Crown Point can perform the entire procedure in less than 10 minutes with no discomfort or anesthesia. The procedure involves these simple steps:

  1. The teeth being treated are cleaned and dried.
  2. Your family dentistry specialist applies a special solution to prepare teeth to bond to the tooth sealants. After 60 seconds, this gets rinsed away.
  3. A very thin layer of the plastic or resin sealant is brushed onto the teeth.
  4. A special curing light is shined on the teeth for one minute to harden the sealant.
  5. Then teeth are protected from cavities.

How to Preserve the Protection

It’s hard to believe that such a fast treatment can give you years of protection, but it’s true. Tooth sealants can last for 10 years or more with proper oral hygiene and regular professional check-ups and cleanings. If dental sealants get chipped or cracked, an affordable dentist in Crown Point can quickly reapply the sealant to maintain its protection.
