Dental Sealants Help Protect Your Smile

Designed to protect molars and premolars from cavities and decay, at Dentistry on Taunton in Ajax and Whitby, we know that dental sealants offer preventive benefits that can help patients keep their smiles healthy and strong for many years!

What are dental sealants?

Dental sealants are clear, thin plastic coatings that are placed over the surface of molars and premolars, which can be especially susceptible to decay. They bond with the enamel to create a protective barrier against bacteria, plaque, and other substances that can damage teeth.

How are they applied?

Our dentist will clean and dry each tooth before applying a solution that helps the sealant adhere to the teeth. The solution is then wiped away, and the tooth surface is coated with sealant liquid form that is then hardened with a special curing light. The treatment is quick, easy, and painless!

What are the benefits of dental sealants?

The primary benefit is that they provide effective protection against cavities and tooth decay. The sealant prevents food particles and bacteria from getting stuck in the pits and fissures of your teeth, which can allow cavities to form. Additionally, sealants can last up to 10 years with diligent daily care and maintenance.

Who is a good candidate for dental sealants?

Dental sealants are usually recommended for children and teens since their diets often put them at risk for cavities. They can also be helpful for adults, but it’s important to note that sealants can only be applied to teeth that have not undergone restorative services.

If you’re interested in having dental sealants placed or have questions about this service, call our friendly team today. We’re dedicated to helping you achieve and maintain a healthy and beautiful smile for life!
