Dental Sealants In Sandy, UT

Dental sealants are thin coatings that are applied on the chewing surfaces of teeth, mainly on the molars and premolars, as a preventive measure against dental caries (cavities). The sealant material mainly consists of a resin that can bond effectively to the enamel of the teeth. Dental sealants are widely used in children and teenagers, as they are at a higher risk of developing cavities on their teeth.

The application of dental sealants is a painless and straightforward procedure. First, the teeth to be sealed are thoroughly cleaned and dried. Then, the sealant material is applied on the chewing surfaces of the teeth and allowed to bond with the enamel using a special curing light. Once applied, the sealant acts as a protective barrier, preventing bacteria and food particles from settling on the teeth’ surfaces and leading to cavities.

One of the significant benefits of dental sealants is their effectiveness in preventing cavities. Studies show that dental sealants can reduce the risk of cavities in the protected teeth by up to 80%. Additionally, dental sealants are a cost-effective preventive measure that can save the patient money and time in the long run. Lastly, dental sealants are a non-invasive procedure that does not require any drilling or removal of healthy tooth structure, making them a safe and reliable preventive measure for children and teenagers.
