Sealants

 

 

 What Are Sealants

About 90% of decay starts in the fissures (grooves on the tooth surface). The problem with these fissures or grooves is that they are often very narrow and deep and brushing them is not nearly effective in removing all the plaque in these crevices. The plaque lies happily in these deep recesses carrying on with its decay process. The fissure soon starts to appear dark and eventually a small cavity will form.

Do not underestimate the effectiveness of this preventative treatment! 

Insist on all your children's back teeth being sealed!

 

 Sealant Indications


One would place a sealant as soon as possible after the eruption of the back teeth. Mainly children's teeth are indicated, but any tooth with deep crevices on the biting surface where plaque can hide from your toothbrush is indicated. Medium to high caries risk patients almost always have to have their teeth sealed to eliminate all the hiding places for the bacteria.

 

 Sealant Procedure


The procedure is painless and no local anesthetic is needed. The tooth is polished with water and pumice and an acid etch is placed. The acid is washed off and the sealant that looks like white glue, gets put into these crevices to close them up. A smooth surface is left that prevents any plaque from entering the tooth.
