Consisting of a thin layer of acrylic that is applied over a person’s back teeth, dental sealants are a proven method for preventing the occurrence of cavities and tooth decay. Dental sealants work to smooth out the deep grooves and fissures that are commonly found on a person’s back teeth to make them easier to clean and maintain.

The deep grooves and fissures found on a person’s back teeth contain about 75 percent of all tooth decay that occurs. These areas are known to be very difficult to reach, even with proper brushing and flossing practices. By using dental sealants to make these rough areas smooth, an individual’s back molars can be cleaned much more easily. If dental sealants are maintained properly, they should remain intact for several years.

Children and teenagers are often some of the best candidates for dental sealants since they are still learning how to brush and floss correctly. Baby teeth that feature deep grooves fissures tend to benefit greatly from dental sealants. Still, many adults also receive dental sealants as a way of protecting their back teeth from damage and decay.

Applying Dental Sealants

The process of applying dental sealants is very simple, and it only requires a couple of minutes per tooth. The process starts by cleaning and drying any tooth that is designated for sealing. Next, an etching solution is used to roughen the surface of each tooth so that the sealant material can bond properly.

Once the teeth are ready, the etching solution is washed off, and the teeth are re-dried. The prepared teeth are then carefully painted with the acrylic sealant, and the coating is allowed to dry completely.

"I've been looking for a new dentist after dealing with a few duds, and I've found where I'm going to stay. The office is very neat, clean, and modern, which is reassuring when walking in for the first time. Everyone there, from front office staff, to dental assistants, to the dentist I saw were all wonderful. They took good care of me and got me set up for regular visits in the future that I'm actually excited about. Bonus: There's Netflix to peruse while sitting in the dental chair. I'm sold!"

"This dentistry is the best ever. The receptionists and doctor was totally out of this world. They explained everything from the procedures to the cost before anything was done. Very friendly and gentle. I couldn't believe that when the doctor pulled my tooth that couldn't be saved, it was over just like that. I didn't even know he pulled it. That's how gentle this doctor was. I will highly recommend this place Prosmiles. Hands down!!!"
