Dental Sealants

According to statistics, it has been estimated that anywhere from 60% to 70% of all cavities may be prevented through the use of sealants.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a special type of material that is directly applied to the teeth utilizing an etching fluid.

Sealants Eliminate Bacteria Accumulation

The material is designed to partially penetrate the surface of each tooth in which it is placed so that it completely fills each of the pits and fissures that are present.

Upon drying, a plastic barrier develops which eliminates the possibility for bacteria to accumulate in those pits and fissures. The application process is relatively quick and completely painless.

Prevent Cavities With Dental Sealants

According to statistics, it has been estimated that anywhere from 60% to 70% of all cavities may be prevented through the use of sealants.

While sealants are most commonly utilized on children and teenagers, adults may benefit from the use of dental sealants, too. If an adult does not have any signs of tooth decay or any type of dental fillings in the mouth, they, too, will benefit from the use of dental sealants on the teeth.

No person – regardless of age – is completely immune to the development of decay as a result of infectious bacteria. As a result of this fact, there are many benefits that may be experienced by adults when the plastic barrier is placed on the teeth.
