At Perrinville Family Dentistry, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive dental care that not only addresses current dental issues but also prevents future ones. One of the key preventive services we offer is dental sealants, a simple yet highly effective treatment designed to protect teeth from decay. Dental sealants are a protective coating applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars), where most cavities in children and teens tend to develop.

The process for applying sealants is straightforward and painless. First, the teeth are thoroughly cleaned and prepared with a solution that helps the sealant bond to the tooth surface. Then, the sealant material is painted onto the tooth enamel, where it hardens and forms a protective shield over the tooth. This barrier protects the enamel from plaque and acids, preventing cavities from forming.

Dental sealants are particularly beneficial for children and teenagers as they navigate the cavity-prone years of ages 6 to 14. However, adults without decay or fillings in their molars can also benefit from sealants.

The advantages of dental sealants include:

  • Effective prevention against tooth decay
  • A non-invasive, painless procedure
  • Immediate return to normal activities after application
  • Long-lasting protection, with sealants able to last for several years under the force of normal chewing
