Dental Sealants can be an extremely effective way to prevent tooth decay and cavities, and can be used by almost anyone. Once applied, the sealant protects your teeth from the tiny food particles that can settle into the grooves of your teeth, where brushing and flossing often can’t reach. These particles can breed harmful bacteria that can damage your teeth in a number of ways. Dental sealants can protect you from the damage that occurs to your teeth from everyday activities such as eating and drinking.
Having a dental sealant applied is a very easy process, and the professionals at Stonebridge Dental are knowledgeable and skilled in this procedure. First, your dental health will be assessed with thorough examination, and your teeth will be cleaned. If no major dental work needs to be done, your dentist will then apply a special gel to your teeth and let it sit for several minutes. Once the gel is washed off and your teeth are dried, the dental sealant will then be painted onto your teeth and allowed to harden. The process is completely painless. When taken care of properly, dental sealants can last up to 10 years.
Anyone is a good candidate for dental sealants, as long as they have their full set of permanent teeth. In fact, children should have a dental sealant applied as soon as their molars have broken through the gums. This can help prevent a number of dental issues as they grow older, and can help keep their teeth in good condition much longer than everyday brushing and flossing. Adults can also benefit, especially if they regularly suffer from cavities. It’s important to note, however, that sealants aren’t meant to take the place of regular dental hygiene practices. Daily brushing and flossing, and regular dental checkups will still be necessary in order to maintain your optimum dental health.
