Dental Sealants

dental sealants at Linglestown Family Dental in Harrisburg, PA

Dental sealants are a preventive dental treatment aimed at protecting the teeth, particularly the molars and premolars, from tooth decay.  They are thin coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, where tooth decay commonly occurs.  Once applied, the sealant serves as a protectant to preserve healthy teeth.  Applying dental sealants is an inexpensive way to promote dental health and reduce the chances of tooth decay for years.

The application of dental sealants is a quick and painless procedure.  The teeth are thoroughly cleaned, and the sealant material is painted onto the tooth surface.  It bonds to the enamel and forms a protective shield that acts as a barrier against bacteria and food particles, preventing them from settling into the deep grooves and pits of the teeth.

Dental sealants are most commonly recommended for children and teenagers as soon as their permanent molars erupt.  However, they can also be beneficial for adults who have deep grooves and are at higher risk of developing tooth decay.

Sealants can effectively reduce the risk of cavities and preserve the natural tooth structure.  They are a cost-effective and minimally invasive preventive measure that can complement regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.

With proper oral hygiene and regular monitoring, dental sealants can provide long-lasting protection, promoting optimal oral health and helping to prevent the need for more extensive dental treatments in the future.  Schedule an appointment with Linglestown Family Dental to learn more and take proactive steps to keeping a healthy, happy mouth!
