What are dental sealants?

Dental sealants are preventive dental treatments designed to protect teeth from decay. Dental sealants are made of clear or tooth-colored material painted onto the chewing surface of the tooth. Once painted and sealed, dental sealants block bacteria and food debris from deep grooves that often cause decay. While dental sealants provide a layer of protection for your teeth, they are not a substitute for daily brushing and flossing.

Are dental sealants safe?

Dental sealants are considered a very safe and effective preventive dental treatment. Some patients are hesitant to schedule sealant placements due to the fact that they have been known to contain BPA. However, there are many other activities, like drinking out of plastic water bottles and handling receipts, that expose patients to higher amounts of BPA than dental sealants. We believe the benefits of dental sealants far outweigh the potential negative effects!

How long do dental sealants last?

Dental sealants are long-lasting and typically need to be reapplied every seven to ten years. While dental sealants offer long protection, they don’t last forever, and their longevity depends on your oral hygiene care and habits. For example, dental sealants can wear down over time due to chewing. Regular dental visits every six months are the perfect opportunity for our team to check if your sealants are intact and help prevent decay.
