Dental Sealants

Our dentists and team understand that maintaining optimal oral hygiene is essential for a radiant smile and that is why we are excited to introduce you to the benefits of dental sealants.

What are Dental Sealants?
Dental sealants are protective coatings that can be applied to the surface of your back teeth which are particularly susceptible to decay because of their deep grooves and hard-to-reach nature. Sealants act as a barrier, sealing off these vulnerable areas and preventing bacteria and food particles from causing cavities. They are easily applied to your teeth and can last for many years.

Why Choose Dental Sealants?

  • Prevent Tooth Decay: By sealing off the deep grooves and pits on your molars, dental sealants provide an extra layer of protection against decay-causing bacteria.
  • Long-lasting Protection: Sealants can last for several years with proper care, providing continuous protection against cavities.
  • Cost-effective: Investing in dental sealants now can save you money by reducing the need for costly restorative treatments such as fillings and crowns.

Who Can Benefit from Dental Sealants?
While sealants are commonly recommended for children and teenagers, adults can also benefit from this preventive treatment. If you have deep grooves or pits on the chewing surfaces of your teeth or a history of cavities, dental sealants may be a suitable option to safeguard your smile.

Maintaining Sealant Health
Maintaining the integrity of your dental sealants is simple:

  • Regular Dental Checkups: Schedule regular dental checkups so that our experienced dental team can monitor the condition of your sealants and ensure they remain intact.
  • Good Oral Hygiene: Brush your teeth and floss regularly to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
  • Avoid Chewing Hard Objects: Avoid chewing on hard objects such as ice or hard candies, as this can damage the sealants.
