Dental Sealants

Shield your teeth from decay with our dental sealants treatment. Ideal for children and adults alike, sealants provide a preventive layer over enamel.

Dental sealants are a simple, effective way to protect your teeth from decay, especially for molars and premolars with deep grooves that are susceptible to plaque buildup. At Select Dental Office, we provide high-quality dental sealants as a preventive measure to safeguard your and your family’s oral health.

What Are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are a thin, protective coating made from plastic or other dental materials that are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). This coating seals the grooves and pits in the teeth where food particles and bacteria are likely to get trapped and cause decay.

Who Needs Dental Sealants?

While children and teenagers are obvious candidates for sealants because of the likelihood of developing decay in the depressions of pre-molars and molars, adults can also benefit from sealants, particularly if they don’t have fillings or decay in their molars.

Application Process

  1. Cleaning: The tooth is thoroughly cleaned to ensure the sealant adheres properly.
  2. Preparation: The chewing surface is then dried, and an acidic solution is applied to roughen the surface to help the sealant bond to the tooth.
  3. Application: The sealant is painted onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds directly and hardens. Sometimes a special curing light is used to help the sealant harden.

Benefits of Dental Sealants

  • Cavity Prevention: Sealants provide a protective shield that prevents bacteria and food particles from settling on your teeth.
  • Long-Lasting Protection: Sealants can protect against decay for up to 10 years, but need to be checked for wear and tear during regular dental visits.
  • Cost-Effective: By preventing cavities and other dental issues, sealants save money on future dental treatments.
  • Quick and Pain-Free Application: The process is fast, comfortable, and non-invasive with immediate results.
