Tooth Sealants in Gainesville

Protecting Your Teeth in Braselton

Sometimes molars and pre-molars have crevasses and grooves on their chewing surfaces that make it difficult to fully remove food and plaque. Tooth decay can often result from the inability to clean these areas. In fact, more than 75% of dental decay begins within these pits. To prevent this decay, our Braselton- and Gainesville-based dentists recommend applying dental sealants, which are thin plastic coverings that cover surface irregularities and block food from entering. Once a sealant is applied, it helps to prevent tooth decay.

Patients of all ages can benefit from dental sealants. For children and teenagers, sealants help protect cavity-prone pre-molars. Sealants also safeguard permanent molars for adults. Babies may need sealants if a child’s tooth is prone to cavities or if the baby teeth have deep grooves or depressions.

Sealant Application

Sealants are applied very quickly and the application process is easy and gentle. A dentist or hygienist will thoroughly clean the teeth and apply a gel to the tooth’s face for a very short period of time. The gel is then removed, and the teeth are rinsed and dried. Once this process is complete, the sealant is applied directly to the teeth; it only takes a minute or two for the sealant to harden and begin its protection.

Remember, sealants are preventive care for tooth decay and can spare patients the expense of tooth replacements or dental fillings in the future. Sealants can last many years and are easy to replace at a regular exam.
