Sealants

general dentistry

Prince Dental Care believes that good dental health is all about being proactive! We strive to make our patient’s smiles look healthy and beautiful, from the young to the old. This is why we take special care to provide sealants to our patients most likely to develop cavities. For care that begins before any issues develop, we are the dentist to see.

What are Dental Sealants?

Sealants are plastic coatings that are generally placed on the chewing surface of the teeth (molars and premolars) to protect them from decay. Due to the likelihood of developing cavities in the grooves of those more hard-to-reach surfaces, children and teenagers are usually the most likely candidates for the procedure. However, adults can still benefit from sealants if they do not have fillings or are concerned with developing decay.

How Long do Sealants Last?

The life of a dental sealant is dependent of the amount of daily wear and tear. However, on average, they tend to last for upwards of ten years. Regular visits with your dentist will be necessary as they will be able to determine if any chipping has occurred and if replacements are necessary.

What are the Benefits of Dental Sealants?

Aside from saving you money in future dental treatments, this type of preventative procedure carries a number of benefits to the long-term health of your teeth:

  • Minimize risk of cavities

  • Helps preserve the position of permanent teeth in children

  • Quick application

  • Lasting results
