Dental Sealants

Posted on 1/10/2022 by Spektor Dental
Dental SealantsDental sealants are coatings that are painted at the back teeth or molars to prevent the formation of cavities. Sealants protect chewing surfaces from getting cavities since the coat blocks out germs and food. The team of our dentists are ready to get you dental sealants to prevent cavities from forming and future tooth decay.

Why are sealants on teeth?

The chewing surfaces especially premolars and molars are vulnerable to decay. They have fissures that can be difficult to clean since not even a toothbrush can get to them. The plaque then accumulates in these fissures and the acid attacks the enamel that covers the dentin and cavities form. The use of fluoride will help in the prevention of tooth decay and prevents all surfaces of the teeth. The sealants offer extra protection from attack by the acid.

Are sealants only on molars and premolars?

The sealants are placed on chewing surfaces to protect the teeth from decay. They can also be used on other permanent teeth as long as it has a groove that will help protect these surfaces. The dentist will recommend the use of sealants on the chewing surfaces of the primary teeth. The dental sealants are common if the adult is at risk of dental caries or has deep grooves that can make plaque accumulate causing cavities. They are effective in offering help against the decay of tooth especially on the chewing surfaces of the teeth. The dentist will determine and examine the teeth and come up with a treatment plan suitable for you. If taken care of the dental sealants can stay for many years and a new sealant will be needed only when you need to change to a new one.
