Dental Sealants in Indiana

Tooth decay is caused by the acids in bacteria-laden plaque, and it’s one of the most common children’s health conditions in the world. If left untreated, poor overall oral health and eventual tooth loss may occur. Fortunately, it’s easily preventable through good oral hygiene and professional dental care. One way that your dentist can help reduce the risk of tooth decay is to apply dental sealants.

How Dental Sealants Save Teeth

Dental sealants are liquid substances that a dentist paints onto the surfaces of vulnerable teeth to serve as a barrier between plaque and tooth enamel. They’re most often applied to molars because these teeth are used more and are located in an area that’s more difficult to reach with a toothbrush. Sealants for teeth are clear or white in appearance and don’t affect the look or function of teeth. The plastic coatings fill in the tiny crevices and pits where plaque can easily accumulate.

Steps of the Dental Sealant Procedure

Applying a tooth sealant is a quick and painless process. Here are the basic steps:

  1. Before applying dental sealants, teeth must be clean and dry.
  2. A gentle acid solution is first applied to teeth to create a rougher surface that can more easily bond with the sealant.
  3. After preparations are complete, dental sealants are brushed onto the chewing surfaces of teeth in a thin layer.
  4. Some types of sealants rely on a special blue LED light to cure or harden them. Administering the light is a safe and painless step, and it only takes several seconds to cure each tooth.

Dental Sealants Cost

The cost of applying tooth sealants is minimal when compared to the amount of money spent on fillings, root canals, crowns, and extractions. Many insurance policies cover the dental sealants because they actually save money over time. If you want to learn more about the cost of dental sealants in Indiana, contact us today.

Dental Sealants for Adults: It’s Never Too Late

Dental sealants can help prevent cavities in adults just as well as they do for children. In fact, treatment with a tooth sealant is often recommended for adults who have a higher-than-average risk of tooth decay. Such adults include those with a family history of tooth decay or tooth loss, those who have receding gums, and those who are taking drugs that alter saliva production.

Sealants for Children’s Teeth

Dentists usually apply dental sealants as soon as first and second molars make their debut. Prompt treatment dramatically lowers the risk of cavities. Our experienced dentists have applied dental sealants to many adult and children’s teeth.

How Safe are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants have been used safely and effectively since the 1960s. In our practice, each sealant dental professionals use has been proven safe and effective by the ADA and other industry leaders.
