Fissure Sealants

Fissure Sealants Detail 01

Prevention plays a big role in making sure you have the teeth of your dreams. Thanks to modern dentistry, there are a number of preventive dentistry services you can take advantage of to ensure the best condition for your teeth.

We at Caringbah Dental Care encourage our patients to embrace preventive dentistry measures for brighter and healthier pearly whites.

Fissure sealants are one of these preventive dentistry services. Popular with both young and adult crowds, dental sealants effectively stop decay and protect teeth for picture-perfect pearly whites. Read on to learn more.

What Are Dental Sealants?

Good oral hygiene practices such as brushing and flossing are your number one weapons against tooth decay. However they are not everything. For instance, not all areas in your mouth can be reached and properly brushed. The molars are one of these areas making them perfect breeding spots for bacteria and for cavities to set in.

With regular dental check-ups, decay can be detected and stopped immediately. Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings, usually made of plastic. They cover the molars so bacteria can’t develop.

Dental sealants are best applied when the molars first erupt. By sealing them, your mouth is protected from possible decay. Sealants can also be applied to teeth showing early signs of decay

Benefits Of Dental Sealants

Dental sealants, just like all preventive dentistry services, focus on prevention. The following are the advantages and benefits of dental sealants.

1 Save money.

The molars are cleaned and dried before an acidic gel is applied. This gel roughens the tooth’s surfaces so the sealant can bond properly.

2 Save your teeth.

Cavities cannot set in with the dental sealants protecting your teeth.

3 Stop tooth decay.

Dental sealants can also be used to stop the development of decay and protect teeth from further damage. Dental sealants are proven to effectively reduce tooth decay by 90%.

4 No side effects.

The dental sealants procedure does not have any negative side effects.

The Dental Sealants Procedure

The dental procedure is a quick and non-invasive process. It follows three steps and takes only one dental trip.

First. The molars are cleaned and dried before an acidic gel is applied. This gel roughens the tooth’s surfaces so the sealant can bond properly.

Second. The acidic gel stays in place for a few seconds. Afterwards, it is removed and the tooth is dried again.

Third. The sealants are applied and hardened by an ultraviolet light.
