What Are Dental Sealants?
The teeth in the back of the mouth, known as molars and pre-molars, are used for chewing, and they are prone to a lot of wear. Dental sealants are a way to ward off bacteria that forms when food particles settle in the numerous pits and fissures found on the surface of these teeth. By applying a liquid that quickly hardens into a thin but extremely durable plastic shell, our dentists can help keep your back teeth healthy and free of decay. Along with regular brushing, fluoride treatment and professional teeth cleaning, dental sealants are an effective tool toward achieving optimal oral health. These protective shells can last for five to 10 years before needing reapplication.
Dental sealants have been used for decades by trusted professionals, such as our team at Carletti Dentistry and Associates. We regularly provide dental sealants to children, teens and adults. Dental sealants are recommended as soon as the first permanent molars come in, usually in children ages 5 to 10. The second permanent molars typically appear between ages 11 and 14.
