Prevent Tooth Decay With Dental Sealants

Brushing and flossing remove most of the buildup that can cause tooth decay. However, some of the tighter spaces are hard to care for on your own. You can help keep your teeth clean between dental visits by choosing a tooth sealant.

A dental sealant is a thin plastic coating that is painted onto the top of each tooth, usually with a focus on the back teeth used for chewing. The coating forms to the teeth, creating a protective layer against food and plaque while still allowing the patient to chew normally. Dental sealants prevent decay-causing bacteria from accumulating by keeping food and plaque off the surfaces.

Who Are Dental Sealants For?

Dental sealants are most common in younger patients whose adult teeth have come in. Adolescents are more likely to develop tooth decay, so sealants can ensure their teeth stay strong into adulthood. In most cases, we’ll provide sealants for permanent molars and premolars as soon as they erupt.

While most patients who receive dental sealants are children, we also seal teeth for adults. As an adult, you may be a candidate for dental sealants if your molars have little decay and are free of fillings.

Sealant Application

At AZ Dental, our sealant application process is quick and comfortable for the patient. We seal each tooth in a matter of minutes. During the process, we:

  • Clean each tooth that we’ll seal.
  • Dry each tooth, then apply cotton to keep them dry.
  • Administer an acidic solution to harden the chewing surfaces.
  • Rinse and dry each tooth after applying the acid.
  • Paint the sealant onto the enamel and allow it to set.
