Dental Sealants

What Are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are a preventative dental treatment that coats the surface of a tooth in order to protect it from future tooth decay. The most common areas that dental sealants are applied are on the molars, due to the continual chewing that takes place on these surfaces. Dental sealants are provided to protect the overall quality of the tooth. This makes it an excellent option for maintaining the durability of your teeth. Dr. Nicholas Pile and his team specialize in sealant care and can provide you and your child with the protection that your teeth need.

Because sealants can last between 5 and 10 years, they are a great option for children, especially if they still have their deciduous, or baby, teeth. The sealant will help protect the molars as they grow in, especially because these teeth can be sensitive at such a young age. If you think that your child needs dental sealants applied to their teeth, then call Dr. Pile right now. 623-551-5555

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Sealants?

It is important that parents teach their children proper hygiene at a young age. Brushing, flossing and using mouthwash can help build stronger teeth and gums, which will help contribute to better overall oral hygiene. Furthermore, this preventative care will help avoid issues that could become much longer and lasting issues.  Dental sealants are applied on top of the tooth, protecting the tooth from bacteria and food particles can build up in the nooks and crannies of a child’s teeth. They have a lasting effects on the overall quality of the tooth.

Who Should Consider Dental Sealants?

Most commonly, children in their teenage years are the best candidates for dental sealants. When a child’s adult teeth start to grow in, they are the set of teeth that will need to last for the remainder of their lives. However, many children are prone to get cavities between the ages of 6-14, due to oral hygiene and the food that they eat. Because dental sealants last for nearly a decade, parents may want to consider getting dental sealants for their children during this time period. Then as the child gets older, the sealant will dissolve and no longer be needed.

While children may be the most suitable for dental sealants, that isn’t to say that adults can’t get benefits from the process as well. Most commonly, dental sealants can be useful for people who have weaker teeth or want to keep their teeth clean from fillings or further decay. In any event, a dental sealant can help adults and children maintain the overall health of their teeth.
