Learn a Little Bit More About Dental Sealants

Posted .

You have most likely been told about the benefits that come from using oral sealants, but do you understand what exactly dental sealants are and what they’re developed from? To help you wrap your head around dental sealants, we’ve put together this blog post. If you still have any queries after reading it, please feel free to contact us.

Dental sealants are special applications of gel that protect your molars from tooth decay and cavities. In most cases, unremoved leftover food remnants in tough-to-reach places (like your molars) erode into acids that eat away at your pearly whites. A dental sealant can be applied to your molars to add another layer of protection in this area commonly uncovered to bacterial acids. The oral gel, which is composed of plastics and other oral materials, will fall into the gaps around your teeth, toughen and fashion a guard that protects from cavities and tooth decay. With suitable brushing, flossing and frequent visits to the dentist, the dental sealant will be able to shield your teeth and oral health for a long time.
