Dental Sealants- Seal Teeth to Protect Your Smile

dca-blog_dental-sealants-protected-tooth

Brushing and flossing regularly are both important for removing food particles and preventing plaque formation on smooth tooth surfaces, but your toothbrush has its limitations. Toothbrush bristles are unable to reach into the depressions and small grooves where food and plaque can hide and ultimately cause decay. Fortunately, your dentist can help by applying a tooth sealant. Dental sealants act as barriers to keep food away from vulnerable surfaces where they can cause cavities. Plastic coatings used to seal teeth are applied directly onto the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars where decay commonly starts.

How Do Dental Sealants Work?

A plastic resin sealant is painted directly onto the tooth enamel. It bonds to the surface and hardens to seal teeth away from plaque and acids. As long as it stays intact, the tooth is protected against decay. A sealant may last for several years under normal conditions. During regular dental exams, your dentist will check to see if sealants need to be reapplied. Teens and children who are most vulnerable to decay on molar and premolar surfaces are great candidates for sealants. However, many adults can also benefit.

Tactic for Preventing Tooth Decay

Keeping a healthy smile requires dedication. Brush twice a day with toothpaste your dentist recommends, clean between your teeth with dental floss or an interdental cleaner, eat a tooth-friendly, balanced diet and keep your dental appointments. If you need extra cavity prevention, ask your dentist if a tooth sealant is right for you.
