Save Your Smile from Cavities with the Protection of Dental Sealants

dca-blog-262-Dental-Sealants_1200x630

Prevent decay from destroying your smile by discovering dental sealants. They are a powerful preventative measure that can keep cavities away. Learn why dental sealants make both patients and dentists smile.

Safeguard Teeth from Decay with Sealant

Sealants are applied to the grooves and fissures of molars to shield these teeth from cavities. These thin, plastic coatings form a protective blockade against plaque and particles that can get caught in these deep crevices and evolve into decay. Dental care specialists often recommend them for children, but also suggest sealants for adults who demonstrate a propensity for cavities. Sealants have become popular because they are extremely effective in reducing cavities. In fact, research shows that sealants offer an 80 percent immediate reduction in cavities and a 60 percent reduction over the four years or more after application. The protection of dental sealants is also much less costly than the cavity treatment of fillings, which is why sealants are widely recommended and available at most affordable dentistry practices.

A Painless Dental Care Procedure

It’s fast and painless to apply dental sealants. The teeth are cleaned and then properly prepared with a special solution. This solution is then rinsed away and the sealant is applied to each tooth, which only takes a matter of minutes. Then, the sealant is cured, or hardened, with a powerful light to bond it to the tooth. Once set, dental sealants can last many years. However, they can sometimes chip or come off over time, so they must be regularly examined at your dental care check-ups. Don’t worry if this occurs because sealants can be quickly replaced for very little cost at an affordable dentistry practice.

The Facts About Sealants

Dental sealants can help people of all ages, but they aren’t right for everyone. They cannot be applied to teeth that are showing signs of decay or that already have fillings. And, while they are often advisable for children, not every child needs them because some kids are less prone to cavities and others have great dental care habits. Finally, there has been some uncertainty about a chemical in some sealants called bisphenol A (BPA). The American Dental Association (ADA) has reviewed the latest evidence and concluded that safety concerns about BPA exposure from dental sealants are unfounded. The ADA is a professional association of dentists devoted to the public’s oral health and research into the safety of dental care practices. The ADA supports additional research into BPA safety, but fully agrees with government agencies that the low level of potential BPA exposure from dental sealants poses no known health risks and that dental sealants are safe preventative measures.
