Dental Sealants – Your Questions Answered

dca-blog_dental-sealants-protected-tooth

Many children and adults can benefit from dental sealants. A teeth sealant is a thin layer of plastic resin that is painted onto the chewing surfaces of back teeth where enamel is covered in small grooves and crevices that collect plaque. While brushing and flossing removes food and plaque from smooth tooth surfaces, neither can fully remove germs and debris from the nooks and crannies of molars. Dental sealants prevent food and acids from ever reaching the surfaces of the teeth they protect. Getting a teeth sealant is a painless, fast process that seal teeth from decay for many years.

Why Should I Consider Dental Sealants? If you seal teeth away from plaque and prevent decay, you’ll save time and money by avoiding more costly dental treatments like root canals, fillings, and crowns.

Who is a Candidate for a Teeth Sealant? Small children should have them applied as soon as their first permanent teeth erupt. Children, teens, and adults who are prone to dental decay can benefit from sealants.

Should Dental Sealants be Applied to Baby Teeth? If your child’s baby teeth have pits and grooves, sealing them may be a good option. Baby teeth are important for proper spacing of permanent teeth, so it’s important to prevent them from falling out early.

What Happens if a Sealant Covers a Cavity? A teeth sealant will provide a barrier that doesn’t allow bacteria or acids to access the cavity, so the decay will not progress.

How Long Do Dental Sealants Last? With regular care and minor repairs as necessary, dental sealants can effectively seal teeth for up to ten years.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Sealants? Preventative treatments like sealants are covered by some dental insurance plans. Check with your insurance company to be sure.
