What Exactly Is Dental Sealant?

Dental sealants are a type of plastic coating, and they're used to prevent cavities in the molars and premolars. These teeth are particularly prone to tooth decay, especially in children when their teeth are starting to come in. Not only are the back teeth difficult to reach with a regular toothbrush, but they're also packed full of fissures that are practically impossible to clean effectively. Dental sealants prevent the bacteria and plaque that we all encounter on a daily basis from collecting inside the fissures, so the patient can keep their teeth healthy without having to get professional cleanings several times a year.

How Does Dental Sealant Work?

Thankfully, the process is extremely simple for both the dentist and the patient and it only takes a few minutes for each tooth. The whole process begins with a thorough cleaning. The back teeth need to completely free of any bacteria before the coating goes over them, otherwise, the bacteria will be trapped inside the sealant and rot the tooth over time. After the cleaning, each tooth will receive a priming solution before it gets the sealant. As soon as the solution has dried, the sealant is applied. To help it dry correctly, the dentist may use a special type of light.

When Should You Consider Dental Sealant?

A dental sealant is generally recommended as early as possible. Ideally, it should be as soon as a child's permanent molars come in. There are children with different levels or risk though, so consult a dentist before you schedule the procedure. Dental sealants last for multiple years, but their life varies from person to person. They will start to wear away eventually and should be checked on from time to time to determine their effectiveness.
