Sealants

 
Sealants should be used as part of a child's total preventative dental care. Dental Sealants are thin plastic coatings which are applied to the chewing surfaces of the molars (back teeth). Most tooth decay in children and teens occurs on these surfaces. Sealants cover the chewing surfaces to prevent decay. Applying sealants does not require drilling or removing tooth structure. It is an easy three-strep process:
 
  • We clean the tooth with a special toothpaste
  • A special cleansing liquid, on a tiny piece of cotton, is rubbed gently on the tooth and is washed off. 
  • Finally, the sealant is painted on the tooth. It takes about a minute for the sealant to form a protective shield.
 
One sealant application can last for as long as 5 to 10 years. Sealants should be checked regular and reapplied if they are no longer in place.
