Dental Sealants

Keeping the teeth free of cavities is a full time job. Between sugary food particles left in the teeth after eating, constant drinking throughout the day, chewing gum, candy and just regular eating — your teeth need constant attention. But who has time to devote hours a day to dental care? If you said, Not Me, then you would be correct. So what is the solution to full time dental protection? Dental sealants.

Dental sealants act as a barrier to prevent cavities from forming in the teeth. The premolars and molars in the back part of the mouth have many grooves and pits where food particles love to hang out and where tooth brushes have a hard time reaching. Sealants are a plastic material applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where decay often occurs.

People of all ages are good candidates for dental sealants. The process of having dental sealants applied is a painless and very simple procedure. Sealants are applied at the end of a dental cleaning when the teeth are free of all plaque, tartar build up, and food. The teeth that will be receiving a sealant are thoroughly dried and cotton swabs are placed around the teeth to keep them free of moisture. The sealant is painted onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds directly to the tooth and hardens. The liquid plastic sinks into the depressions and grooves of the teeth and acts as a barrier, protecting the teeth from plaque and acids. Sealants hold up well and can last a few years. They can be reapplied at normal dental visits when necessary.

If you would like to have your dental care work for you 24 hours a day, sealants are an excellent choice. Drs. Randy and Lydia Muccioli want to help you maintain optimal dental health with dental sealants. Call now to schedule an appointment for a dental cleaning and sealant application.
