Protect Your Smile With Dental Sealants
A protective treatment that helps protect teeth from decay and cavities, dental sealants are a thin, plastic coating that are applied to the surface of a tooth, sealing its grooves and fissures to prevent bacteria from entering and causing damage. At King East Dental in Stoney Creek, we’re happy to provide patients of all ages with dental sealants. Call us today to schedule an appointment!
How are sealants placed?
First, our dentist will clean and dry your molars and premolars. Then, an acidic solution will be applied to help the sealant bond with the enamel. Once complete, a thin layer of the sealant will be painted onto the surfaces of your teeth. After it has been properly cured and hardened, the sealant is complete, and you'll be ready to go!
What are the main benefits associated with dental sealants?
There are many! They can effectively prevent cavities, make it easier for you to keep your teeth clean, and they’re very durable and long-lasting. When cared for diligently, sealants can last for up to 10 years!
Is anyone a candidate for dental sealants?
This treatment can be beneficial for people of all ages, but they're especially helpful for children and young adults whose teeth are more susceptible to cavities. In some cases, sealants can even be used on adults with deep grooves in their teeth that are prone to decay.
