Dental sealants are plastic resins that bond and harden in the deep grooves on your tooth’s surface. When a tooth is sealed, the tiny grooves become smooth and are less likely to harbor plaque. With sealants, brushing your teeth becomes easier and more effective against tooth decay. Some sealants even release fluoride to help strengthen the teeth as well. Dental sealants are very important for children because their oral hygiene may not be effective yet and they may not understand how important it is to keep their teeth clean.
Dental sealants, when applied appropriately and properly, are one of the most conservative and inexpensive preventive dental services that we routinely recommend to our patients. A dental sealant can effectively seal all of the grooves on the biting surfaces of posterior teeth thereby making teeth almost impermeable to the destructive bacteria known for creating cavities.
Quite simply, our patients use sealants to preventive the formation of dental decay where over 80%+ of the cavities form on biting surface grooves, helping them avoid more costly dental procedures,
like fillings and crowns.
