Dental Sealant Q & A

The team at Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry loves to discuss sealants. The team thinks they’re the tops!

Q. What are dental sealants?
A. Dental sealants are permanent plastic barriers applied to the biting surfaces of teeth. They prevent cavities by filling in the grooves and fissures where food particles are particularly difficult to remove. Most pediatric and family dentists offer sealants to their patients.

A. Do sealants significantly reduce tooth decay?
Q. Yes. Studies show that dental sealants can reduce the risk of decay by 70%!

Q. How are dental sealants applied to the teeth?
A. Our team applies the sealant resin as a liquid which quickly hardens and adheres tightly to the pits and grooves. The procedure is quick, uncomplicated and painless.

Q. Which teeth can benefit the most from sealants?
A. We typically apply sealants to the first and second molars because they are at the highest risk for decay.

Q. Are sealants just for kids?
A. No! Talk to us about whether sealants could benefit you.

Q. Is brushing and flossing still necessary for the teeth with sealants?
A. Yes. Good oral hygiene is still important to keep teeth and gums healthy. Even the teeth with sealants are at risk for decay along the gumline.
