Dental Sealants: Preventive Care for Long-Lasting Oral Health

At Davenport Dental, we provide dental sealants as a part of our preventive dental care services. Sealants are a simple yet effective way to protect your teeth against decay and cavities.

Dental Sealants

What Are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are a thin, protective coating that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). They act as a barrier, shielding the enamel from plaque, bacteria, and acids that contribute to tooth decay.

How is the Dental Sealant Procedure Performed?

The procedure for applying dental sealants is quick and painless:

  • The teeth are thoroughly cleaned and dried.
  • An acidic solution is applied to the chewing surfaces to roughen them, which helps the sealant bond to the tooth.
  • The teeth are then rinsed and dried.
  • The sealant material is painted onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds directly and hardens. Sometimes a curing light is used to help the sealant harden.

Who Can Benefit from Dental Sealants?

While sealants are particularly beneficial for children and teenagers, as they are more prone to cavities, adults without fillings or decay can also benefit from sealants.
