Dental Sealants

While brushing and flossing are commendable oral practices for removing plaque and food debris, certain tooth regions, referred to as fissures, remain inaccessible to toothbrushes. This vulnerability increases the risk of cavities and tooth decay. Dental sealants play a crucial role in shielding these areas from potential harm, effectively blocking out harmful substances like food particles and plaque.

What are sealants for teeth?

As in all cases of dental intervention, the first step is consulting a dentist.

✓ Dental sealants are protective coatings skillfully applied to tooth surfaces, warding off wear, tear, and cavities.

✓ This preventive measure entails applying a safeguarding liquid, sealant, primarily to the back teeth, such as premolars and molars.

✓ Rapid bonding of sealants fills grooves and depressions prone to plaque accumulation.

✓ Acting as a protective shield, they thwart food particles and bacteria.

✓ Sealants also prevent food debris from becoming trapped, averting decay.

✓ Durable and enduring, dental sealants offer years of steadfast protection against cavities.

✓ When correctly applied, tooth sealants boast over 80% effectiveness in preventing cavities, particularly in rear teeth.

What is the process for dental sealants?

✓ At BrightCraft Dental and Laser, we prioritize a seamless and comfortable experience when applying tooth sealants.

✓ The procedure is quick, with only a few minutes dedicated to coating each tooth. Prior to application, meticulous cleaning and drying of your gums and teeth ensure no food debris remains beneath the sealant.

✓ A specialized liquid readies the teeth for proper sealant attachment, followed by the application of a clear or tooth-colored sealant directly onto your teeth.

✓ The runny consistency allows the sealant to access every crevice of the tooth.

✓ Finally, a specialized light hardens and secures the sealant onto the tooth’s surface.

✓ This swift process takes just 1-2 minutes per tooth, and it’s entirely painless, eliminating the need for anesthesia.
