What is a dental sealant?

Dental sealants are a type of preventive treatment. They are used to help protect teeth from cavities and tooth decay so that your child can keep their teeth, mouth and smile healthy.

Who can receive dental sealants?

Sealants are typically provided when your child’s permanent molars come in (between the ages of 6 and 12). They are made from a clear or tooth-colored resin material which is painted on the teeth. Once in place, the sealants will last for several years to provide long-term protection for your child’s smile.

How do dental sealants protect teeth?

Sealants form a smooth coating over the natural pits and chewing surfaces of the teeth, blocking out decay-causing factors such as food debris, harmful bacteria and plaque. This smooth coating also makes it easier for children to keep their teeth clean with normal brushing and flossing habits. Depending on your child’s needs, they may need to have sealants applied several times as they grow.

Dental sealants are a preventive treatment designed to protect your child’s teeth from cavities. Sealants are made from clear or tooth-colored resin material. When this material is painted onto the chewing surfaces of the teeth, it forms a smooth coating over the natural pits and grooves of the tooth surface, blocking food debris, harmful bacteria and plaque from the tooth. Sealants also make it easier for your child to keep their teeth clean with regular brushing and flossing.

WHEN TO GET DENTAL SEALANTS

Our children’s dentist will typically provide sealants when your child’s permanent molars come in — usually between the ages of 6 and 12. Sealants can be applied quickly and comfortably during your child’s regular dental visits, and once in place, they can last for several years to provide long-term protection. Depending on your child’s risk of developing cavities and their individual needs, they may need to have dental sealants applied several times over the years.
