Dental Sealants at Willeri Dental

While brushing and flossing your teeth each day are vital oral hygiene habits that can help you enjoy a healthy smile, we also recommend another away to prevent decay: sealants. Having sealants applied to teeth before they decay saves time, pain and money because they help you to avoid the procedures needed to fix decayed teeth!

Fast, Painless and Effective

Sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of your teeth where deep grooves and fissures can be found. These thin coatings protect these parts of the mouth and also make it easier for us to maintain those surfaces. With proper maintenance, including home care and dental visits, sealants can protect your teeth for many years.

Who Should Get Sealants?

Children about the age of 6, who have gotten their first permanent molars and teenagers and adults who experience frequent tooth decay are ideal candidates for sealants. Adults with chronic dry mouth may also benefit from the application of sealants because of the lack of saliva.

The procedure is as follows:

  • The teeth are cleaned and the biting surfaces are prepared for the sealants.
  • The sealant is then flowed onto the tooth enamel and hardened.

With proper maintenance, including home care and regular dental checkups, sealants can protect your teeth for many years.
