What Are Sealants?

Sealants are a protective coating that prevents harmful bacteria from degrading your tooth enamel. This coating is first applied by our dentists as a liquid. UV lighting is then used that causes the sealants to harden, giving you a protective barrier over your teeth.

Dental sealants are designed for ages five and up. Since everyone’s teeth have small pit and grooves in them, you need to do all that you can to keep bacteria out of them. Children are especially susceptible because their teeth are even smaller and, thus, harder to keep clean.

Once your sealants are applied, you can look forward to having protection against cavities and tooth decay for several years. It is possible for sealants to chip or break. If this happens, you simply need to make another appointment to have sealants reapplied to your teeth.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

Applying dental sealants takes about five minutes for each tooth. For most appointments, complete sealant treatment lasts around 45 minutes. After treatment, you can resume eating the foods you love while enjoying the benefits that sealants provide.
