Brushing and flossing are the simplest and most common ways to practice optimum dental hygiene. But did you know that merely brushing and flossing your teeth cannot remove food particles and plaque from the occlusal grooves of your teeth? This is when dental sealants come to your rescue.
Dental sealants are thin, acrylic coatings applied on the chewing surface of your teeth, particularly on the premolars and molars, intending to prevent tooth decay. These sealants bond into the grooves and depression of your teeth, thereby forming a protective shield over the enamel.
The application of dental sealants is not a painful process. Our dentists take only a few minutes to apply the sealant and cover each of your teeth against the accumulation of plaque, tartar, and tooth decay.
The good thing about dental sealants is that every person is qualified to get them. The chances of developing decay in the grooves of premolars, molars, and depressions of the mouth are common in children and teenagers. Thus, they can opt for this procedure. Even adults without fillings or decay in their teeth can opt for dental sealants. In some cases, dental sealants are applied to baby teeth as well.
