What are Dental Sealants?The surface of molars and premolar teeth often have deep grooves called fissures. These grooves are especially vulnerable to decay because food can get stuck, causing plaque to accumulate and a cavity to eventually form. Dental sealants are commonly made of composite resin, a natural-looking, tooth-coloured material placed on the chewing surface of the teeth to protect them. Sealants can also be made of a glass ionomer or polyacid resin material. Fluoride treatments are also a great way to help prevent cavities, but sealants provide superb protection for both grooved and pitted areas of the teeth.
Our Pain-Free Dental Sealant ProcedurePlacing dental sealants on your teeth is easy, painless, and non-invasive, with no drilling required. The dental professionals at Smile n Shine will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove any bacteria before they’re treated and dried. They will then apply a solution that helps the sealant bond with the tooth. Finally, they will apply the sealant and allow it to harden with a curing light to form a protective coating over the tooth.
Caring for Your SealantsCaring for your dental sealants is easy. It simply involves brushing your teeth twice daily and having regular dentist check-ups. If you continue good oral hygiene habits, your sealants should last for a long time.
One of the main complaints parents commonly share regarding their kids is their lack of interest in brushing teeth.Brushing improves one’s oral hygiene, thus helps to keep cavities at bay. However in some cases, it is anatomically difficult to maintain and keep teeth free from food lodgement; like teeth with deep grooves and fissures. Sealants make the deep grooves shallow enough so that it is easier to keep them clean. This helps with prevention of future cavities.
No, the procedure is extremely comfortable and completely pain free and does not involve any local anaesthetics.
