How dental sealants work
What are dental sealants?
A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating that gets painted over the chewing surfaces of your teeth to prevent tooth decay. Once applied, the sealant quickly covers and bonds with the grooves of the teeth, hardening into a protective shell around the enamel of each tooth. This helps to keep discomfort at bay for your sensitive teeth. It also protects the teeth from cavities and decay.
How are dental sealants applied?
Dental sealants are applied in a simple and pain-free process. It takes only a few minutes to seal each tooth after it’s thoroughly cleaned and dried. After being painted onto your teeth, the sealant bonds directly to the layer of enamel on your teeth, hardening into place. That’s it!
What do dental sealants do?
As the name suggests, dental sealants “seal” your teeth from anything that irritates or damages or sensitive teeth, keeping it strong and healthy. Sealants protect hard-to-clean spots, such as the nooks and crannies between the back molars, from plaque and decay.
