Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the teeth' cusps and grooves to stop the accumulation of food particles and microbes. They are a preventive measure that helps children and adults alike to avoid cavities and tooth decay.
Dental sealants are best suited for children who are not able to practice good oral hygiene. They provide a protective coating on the surface of the molars and premolars and keep them safe from the accumulation of food particles, plaque, and bacteria. These sealants offer incredible benefits, such as promoting optimum oral health, enhancing good dental hygiene, preventing tooth decay, preventing cavities, improving oral appearance, and boosting one's confidence and self-esteem.
Before applying dental sealants to your teeth' surface, our dentist conducts an oral examination to determine your dental health status. If you have any existing signs or symptoms of cavities or other oral conditions, we will treat them before bonding dental sealants to your teeth' surface. During this process, we will also determine whether your teeth have any natural grooves or pits that need to be sealed. Next, we will use mild anesthesia to numb your mouth in preparation for this procedure. Once you feel comfortable with no pain or discomfort during this process, we will begin applying dental sealants to your teeth' surface using a special applicator gun. After application, we will polish them and let them dry before rinsing your mouth with water and applying a saliva-resistant coating on top of them.
