Get The Facts Of Dental Sealants Process To Prevent Tooth Decay

Sticky foods and beverages or sugary food intakes are the leading factors for tooth decay. The more sugary or sticky eatables consumed the more acid. If you are looking to prevent tooth decay with painless and comfortable process, I will strongly recommend you to go with Dental Sealants process. Sealants are thin plastic coating usually painted on the back teeth, premolars and molars, on the chewing surface to avoid decay. Online bookings are also available.

Lets know more why Dental Sealants process is highly recommended to take a break from tooth decay problem:

  • Applying Sealant is a simple and painless process
  • It starts by cleaning the teeth thoroughly which need to be sealed.
  • The treatable teeth will be dried by putting absorbent like cotton around the tooth to keep it dry properly.
  • On the chewing surface of the teeth, an acid solution will be applied for roughness and to bond sealant with tooth.
  • The teeth are then rinsed and dried.
  • Lastly, sealant is painted into the tooth enamel, where it directly bonds with the tooth and hardens.

You might be thinking, brushing and flossing can remove food particles and plaque from teeth, so why need to go with such process. Well, yes brushing can take away the eatables particles from you tooth, but it cannot always get into all the crannies and nooks of the back sided teeth’s which leads for serious tooth decay problem after a time period. Sealants protect vulnerable areas from tooth decay by sealing out plaque and food.

Another query, how long Sealants last? Will it require to get replaced very often?

Well, sealants proved to be the teeth protector from decay for up-to 10 years, They only need to be checked by your dentist for chipping and wearing at regular dental check-ups. Your dentist will let you know if they required to get replaced or not.

Okay let’s make one thing clear, who should get Sealants? Is it age specific?

Majorly children’s and teenagers are the favorite candidates of Dental Sealants. However, adults without filling or decay in their molars can also take advantage of sealants. As per my opinion, children should get sealants on their permanent molars and premolars as they get matured. This will help them to protect the teeth from cavity prone years of ages 6 to 14.
