What are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are one of the most effective preventive dental treatments available. A tooth sealant treatment is quick to do and can be done at any dental visit. They are composed of a thin and clear material that is placed on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth in order to keep them healthy and protect against decay. By acting as a barrier, sealants block bacteria and food particles from reaching these vulnerable areas, effectively preventing cavities.

Keep Your Molars and Premolars Decay-Free

Molars and premolars are made for grinding and chewing, so to help with this they have peaks and crevasses. While it is helpful for chewing, it is not helpful for cleaning. Sometimes the crevasses are too small for a bristle to reach, but not too small for bacteria to start decay. With a thin dental sealant covering the crevasses, it successfully prevents tooth decay from forming.
Dental sealants for kids and adults in Watrous & Saskatoon

Dental Sealants for Kids

For children that still have their baby teeth, sealants are a smart way to protect the teeth and keep them healthy until they are ready to fall out on their own. Baby teeth have considerably weaker enamel and are much more prone to decay, so sealing them makes sense.

Sealants for Teens and Adults

Pre-teens and adolescents that are starting to get their adult teeth are also prime candidates for dental sealants. When you get a brand-new cell phone, do you wait a while to put a cellphone case on it or do you do it right away? Right away! With your molars and premolars, it is smart to protect them and seal them as early as possible to prevent future cavities.

Adults that want to take an additional preventative step for their oral health can also consider sealants. It is never too late to get this dental procedure! Schedule your appointment for dental sealants in Saskatoon or Watrous, SK today, and we will help you achieve a beautiful smile.
