Dental Sealants

Our skilled dentist may recommend a dental sealant if you are at greater risk of developing cavities or tooth decay. Sealants are a type of preventive treatment designed to protect your teeth and keep them healthy. They work by literally “sealing out” decay-causing bacteria and food debris from the teeth.

How Sealants Work

Sealants are made from clear or tooth-colored resin material. When you receive a sealant, our dentist simply paints this material onto your teeth, where it forms a smooth coating over the pits and grooves of your teeth. This painting process can be completed in just a few minutes during your regular dental appointments. This coating acts as a shield to block out harmful factors in your mouth. It also makes it easier for you to clean your teeth with normal brushing and flossing.

Dr. Wilson most frequently provides dental sealants for children. Children should receive dental sealants as soon as their permanent molars erupt (between the ages of six and 12). This ensures that the teeth will be protected during critical years of development. Sealants are also available for adults who are at greater risk of tooth decay or who have teeth that have not been restored after sustaining damage in the past.
