Sealants

A dental sealant is a thin coating that is applied to molars to fill in deep grooves and pits that can harbor bacteria. Sealants are applied to healthy chewing surfaces of the teeth to prevent decay and cavities – especially among children. According to the Centers for Disease Control, tooth decay affects more than half of children ages 6 – 8. Sealants are recommended shortly after the molars have erupted from the gums – usually beginning around age six.

Sealants Service
  • Dental sealants can last up to 10 years in the average patient.
  • Many parents choose sealants for their children because it is more affordable and less invasive to prevent cavities than it is to treat irreversible dental decay.
  • Sealants are clear and will not be noticeable when talking, smiling or eating.
  • Dental sealants cover approximately 90 percent of the tooth structure and are extremely effective when fully preserved on the teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if dental sealants are right for my child?

Sealants may be right for your child if he or she has molar teeth that are healthy and free of decay. Schedule a dental consultation for a complete examination to determine if dental sealants could be a preventive health solution for your children.

What should I expect when my child gets dental sealants?

Your child will not experience any pain when sealants are placed. There is no drilling, and the entire tooth is left intact for the procedure. The tooth will be thoroughly cleaned and treated with a special gel before the sealant is painted on and cured. Although your child may at first feel the sealants on his or her teeth, the sealants are very thin and easy to adapt to.

Are there any special care instructions to follow after the sealants are placed?

Normal eating habits can be resumed after dental sealants are applied, although the sealants should be checked at every dental appointment for deterioration. Sealants that are damaged or missing can be replaced.
