A sealant is a thin, plastic coating applied to the chewing surface of molars, premolars and any deep grooves of teeth. Teeth with these conditions are hard to clean and are very susceptible to decay. A sealant protects the tooth by sealing deep grooves, creating a smooth, easy to clean surface

Children and teenagers: Sealants are most beneficial if they are placed on permanent molars as soon as the teeth come in. The first permanent molars grow in between the ages of 5 and 7. The second permanent molars grow in between the ages of 11 and 14.

Adult: Tooth surfaces without decay that have deep groves or depressions

 

What do sealants involve?

To place a sealant an adhesive is first applied to the teeth.  The sealant is then placed over the adhesive as a liquid, as if it is painted right onto the tooth.  The liquid then hardens and creates a barrier between your tooth and any plaque, food particles, and bacteria.  Sealants last for about 10 years and can be reapplied if necessary.

    How long will sealants last?
Sealants can last for up to 10 years. They can be checked at dental visits to see if they need to be replaced.
