Cultivate Your Best Smile With Dental Sealants
At Winter Springs Family Dental in Winter Springs, we know that dental sealants are a great way to protect your teeth from cavities. Via a thin, plastic coating that’s applied directly to the surface of your molars and premolars, this covering shields teeth from food particles and bacteria that can cause decay.
How are dental sealants applied?
The installation process is quick and painless. Our dentist will thoroughly clean and dry your teeth before applying an acidic solution to them, which helps the sealant bond with the tooth enamel effectively. After rinsing this off, a special liquid is applied that enables the sealant to better adhere to the surface of your teeth. Finally, the sealant material is applied and hardened with a curing light.
What are the benefits of dental sealants?
The primary benefit of using dental sealants is their protective qualities. By creating a barrier between your teeth and bacteria, you can reduce your risk for cavities. Sealants also make it easier to clean away food particles that get stuck in the grooves of molars, which can further reduce your risk for decay.
Who is a suitable candidate for dental sealants?
Sealants are generally recommended for children and teens who have newly erupted permanent molars, as well as adults who have deep pits or grooves on their premolars. Our dentist can assess your unique oral health needs and help you determine whether sealants are right for you.
