Sealants

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of the permanent molars (typically after age twelve). The sealants are painted quickly on to the surface of the tooth and allowed to dry and form a protective layer over the deep grooves of teeth. Dental sealants are invisible, smooth, easy to clean, and can last up to 5-10 years. Dental sealants help protect teeth in areas where 75% of dental decay begins.

Dental sealants are a recommended dental care application for children and young adults who are cavity prone (aged 6-16 years) and adults with deep grooves in their tooth surfaces.

Your dental sealants are long-lasting but may need to be checked for wear and chipping during your regular dental visits to Premier Dental Care. Proper oral hygiene, a balanced diet, and regular dental visits will help protect your teeth and your dental sealants as well.
