Family Dentistry Experts Can’t Keep Their Lips Sealed About Dental Sealants

If you’re concerned about cavities, then dental sealants may be just what the dentist ordered. Discover how this dental protection can ease your mind and make you smile.

What Exactly are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings that are bonded into the crevices or sides of teeth to protect them from dental decay, which usually develops in these areas. They come in clear or white to be completely unnoticeable. Sealants are extremely popular and have been used by family dentistry experts since the 1960s.

When is the Best Time for Sealants?

Sealants are a preventive measure, rather than a corrective course of treatment, which is why sealants are typically placed before a cavity has formed. Not all people or all teeth need this dental protection, but this can only be determined after an examination by a family dentistry specialist. In fact, it’s children who usually get them, but sealants are also used on all ages of adults. If dental sealants are recommended, it is best to have them placed as soon as possible to ensure that the teeth are protected. If there are slight signs that a cavity has started to develop, dental sealants may still be recommended. The only way to find out if sealants are needed is by visiting one of the best dentists in Baltimore to evaluate your case.

How Long Will This Protection Last?

While many dental sealants can last up to a decade, they typically can be expected to remain intact for three to five years. Dentists sometimes see adults whose sealants have remained intact since childhood. But any length of time that sealants last is time you can be assured your teeth are protected. If you notice a sealant has chipped or fallen off, visit your family dentistry practitioner as soon as possible so it can be repaired. With the popularity and prevalence of dental sealants today, you can rest assured that any of the dentists in Baltimore will evaluate your sealants during your regular dental check-ups.
