Dental Sealants in

Sealants represent one of the most effective preventive treatment methods for protecting teeth from harmful bacteria. Teeth treated with sealants are much less likely to develop cavities.

Dental Sealants in Revere

Dental sealants are an acrylic plastic coating that is applied over a patient’s back molars and allowed to harden. This coating protects the teeth from harmful bacteria and acids that could otherwise cause serious damage or harm. It also smooths out any rough surfaces so that brushing is more effective. Sealants are relatively easy to apply, and they can go a long way towards protecting the teeth from damage.

Sealants are most often provided for children and younger teens who have not yet lost all of their primary teeth. The primary teeth, also called baby teeth, tend to feature deeper grooves and fissures than adult secondary teeth. This makes these teeth more prone to cavities and decay. When coupled with the fact that children and teens don’t always have the best brushing and flossing habits, it becomes very easy to see why sealants are often provided for younger patients. Still, many adults also receive sealants to protect their teeth. Our experts can determine whether sealants are the right treatment for you and your family.

The placement of sealants is fast and painless. We can often apply them alongside a regular checkup to make things more convenient. A patient who receives sealants will not need to make any major changes to their regular oral hygiene practices.

Most sealants last for around ten years. It is important to remember that regular brushing and flossing is still very important after receiving dental sealants.

The first step when providing sealants is to clean any teeth that are designated for sealing. This is very important, as we do not want any harmful material to become trapped underneath the sealants. The teeth are then dried and treated with an acidic etching gel. This roughens the outer surfaces so that the sealants can bond more easily. We then dry the teeth a final time and apply the sealant coating. Our dentists are very careful to ensure that the teeth are completely sealed. The coating is then allowed to dry and harden so that the teeth remain protected.
