Why Dental Sealants Get the Dental Seal of Approval

dca-blog_dental-sealants-protected-tooth

In the fight to fend off tooth decay, dental sealants are your best defense. They provide a protective barrier that prevents decay from damaging teeth. Now, discover why dental sealants are making dentists smile.

The Deal on Dental Sealants

A dental sealant is a thin plastic film applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth to prevent food and bacteria from harming teeth and causing cavities.

The Strength of Sealants

According to research, dental sealants are 100% effective in protecting teeth from cavities. But once the sealant starts to wear after several years, protection can be reduced or lost. That’s why it’s important to have sealants checked during regular dental visits. Luckily, you can seal teeth many times to replenish full protection.

The Application Situation

A dental sealant is fast and easy to apply. The dentist will clean the tooth and use an acid solution to help the sealant stick before simply brushing the sealant on the tooth. It will harden in a matter of moments, making it possible to treat numerous teeth in less than an hour. Since the sealant is simply brushed onto the tooth, the process is pain-free.

Care is Often Covered by Insurance

Once insurance companies saw that sealants provided proven protection, an increasing number started to cover the procedure. They realized that the treatment could reduce future problems and save the cost of later care.

The Time for Treatment

Children and teens with newly erupted teeth benefit the most from dental sealants because their new permanent teeth are protected from the beginning. But other people can benefit from deciding to seal teeth, especially those with teeth susceptible to tooth decay.
