Dental sealants are a protective shield for your teeth. They are thin coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth—molars and premolars—to prevent decay. The sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, forming a protective layer over the enamel of each tooth.

Benefits of Root Planing and Scaling

  • Cavity Prevention: Sealants protect the most vulnerable areas of your teeth from cavity-causing bacteria and food particles.

  • Easy Application: The process is quick, painless, and non-invasive.

  • Long-lasting Protection: Once applied, sealants can protect teeth from decay for many years, though they should be checked regularly for chipping or wear.

  • Ideal for All Ages: While particularly beneficial for children and teenagers as their permanent teeth come in, sealants are also effective for adults without fillings or decay in their molars.

Why Choose Dental Sealants?

Sealants are an excellent preventative tool that can save time, money, and the discomfort associated with dental fillings and other treatments. They are particularly useful for molars, which are harder to reach and clean thoroughly, making them more susceptible to decay.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Applying sealants is a simple and quick procedure. Here’s what happens:

  1. Cleaning: The tooth is thoroughly cleaned.

  2. Preparation: The tooth is dried, and an absorbent material is placed around it to keep it dry.

  3. Application: A solution is applied to the enamel to help the sealant bond to the surface, then rinsed and dried.

  4. Sealant Application: The sealant is then painted onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds directly and hardens. Sometimes, a special curing light is used to help the sealant harden.
