Help Keep Your Smile Cavity-Free With Dental Sealants
Dental sealants are a great way to protect your teeth and ensure they stay healthy. At Loganville Family Dentistry in Loganville, we want to ensure our patients have the strongest teeth possible, and our sealant services help in that effort.
What are dental sealants?
Sealants are thin, plastic coatings designed to prevent tooth decay on the chewing surfaces of your molars and premolars. They protect against bacteria, acids, and plaque that can cause cavities and tooth decay. The liquid sealants seep into the pits and fissures on the tooth surface, creating a protective barrier over the enamel.
How are dental sealants applied?
During your visit, one of our friendly professionals will clean and dry your teeth before applying a unique solution to help the sealant bond in place. The sealant is applied like paint and is entirely comfortable. Once the sealant has been applied, a special curing light is used to harden the material and seal it.
How long do dental sealants last?
Depending on the type of sealant used, they can last anywhere from five to 10 years before they need reapplication. It's essential to have regular checkups with our dentist to make sure that the sealant is still intact.
Who should consider dental sealants?
Most people can benefit from dental sealants, but they are especially helpful for those with deep grooves or pits on their teeth and may be more prone to tooth decay. Children and adolescents still developing their teeth can also benefit from sealants to ensure their teeth stay healthy and strong. Adults with cognitive or mobility issues or with irregular homecare routines can also benefit from dental sealants.
