Dental Tooth Sealants

Dental Tooth Sealants Westport

On the chewing surfaces of your teeth, there are small grooves and valleys. In some cases, these depressions can trap food and plaque, which regular brushing cannot remove. In order to close over these grooves, we will recommend a dental sealant, which is a thin plastic layer that fills in the nooks and crannies of the teeth. It is a simple and painless process to receive a dental sealant. Dental tooth sealants can benefit both children and adults to protect their adult teeth.

Dental sealants act as a barrier to prevent cavities. The treatment of dental tooth sealants includes applying a thin plastic coating to the molars. The process of sealants is painless. The plastic used in the process is safe. It bonds on the tooth and hardens. Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold well against chewing and biting. They can last for a number of years. In Westport, our expert dentist can apply dental tooth sealants to all age groups.

How Dental Tooth Sealants Are Placed?

This procedure is completely painless. First the tooth or the teeth in which the sealant is to be placed is examined. If there is some decay then that is removed. The tooth is cleaned and then a solution is applied to roughen the surface so that the sealing material can be sustained. The tooth is then rinsed and dried. The sealant is then placed on the tooth and dried with a curing light.

Taking care of sealants

To protect the sealants, it is important that you maintain good oral hygiene. You should brush and floss twice a day and timely take professional cleanings.
