Dental Sealants

At Arcadia Dentistry, we are committed to preventive dental care, and one of the most effective preventive treatments we offer is dental sealants. Designed to shield your teeth from decay, dental sealants are a simple yet powerful solution for maintaining long-term oral health.

What Are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). They form a barrier against food particles, bacteria, and acid, helping to prevent decay in these vulnerable areas. Sealants are particularly beneficial for children and teenagers but can also be advantageous for adults at risk of cavities.

The Process of Applying Dental Sealants

Applying sealants is a quick, painless process. First, the teeth are thoroughly cleaned and dried. Next, a solution is applied to the chewing surfaces to help the sealant bond to the teeth. The teeth are then rinsed and dried again before the sealant material is painted on. The sealant is then hardened under a special light. The entire process takes only a few minutes per tooth and provides long-lasting protection.

Benefits of Dental Sealants

  • Effective Decay Prevention: Sealants protect the grooves and depressions in your molars from decay-causing elements.
  • Painless and Non-Invasive: The application is quick, painless, and does not require drilling or removing tooth structure.
  • Long-Lasting Protection: Sealants can last several years before they need to be reapplied.
  • Cost-Effective: Preventing cavities with sealants can save money on future dental treatments.
