What are Dental Sealants?
Picture this: a thin, protective shield that sticks to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth, also known as molars. That’s what a dental sealant is! It’s made from a safe plastic material that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth. The best part? It keeps away those pesky food particles and bacteria that love to settle in the tiny nooks and crannies of your teeth, thereby reducing the risk of cavities.
Why Dental Sealants Deserve a Medal
Our poor molars are the most susceptible to decay because they have numerous tiny grooves and pits – perfect hideouts for food particles and plaque. Even the most diligent brushing sometimes can’t reach these secret hideouts. Enter dental sealants, providing a smooth surface that covers these hard-to-reach areas and makes cleaning your teeth a breeze.
Who Can Benefit From Dental Sealants?
While dental sealants might sound like something only kids need – given their notorious sweet tooth and sometimes questionable oral hygiene habits – they’re actually great for adults too! It’s never too late to protect your teeth.
The Adventure of Getting Dental Sealants
The process of applying dental sealants is quick, painless, and feels like a mini adventure for your teeth. Your dentist will first clean and dry your tooth before applying an acidic gel. This gel roughens up your tooth surface so a strong bond will form between your tooth and the sealant. After a few seconds, your dentist will rinse off the gel and dry your tooth again before applying the sealant onto the grooves of your tooth. Your dentist will then use a special blue light to harden the sealant. Voila! Your teeth are now protected.
How Long Do Dental Sealants Last?
Dental sealants are like the superhero that keeps on giving. They can protect your teeth from decay for up to 10 years. However, they need to be checked for chipping or wearing at regular dental check-ups. Your dentist can replace sealants as necessary.
Are Dental Sealants Safe?
Yes, dental sealants are absolutely safe. The American Dental Association, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and numerous research studies all give a thumbs-up to their safety and effectiveness.
