Why Adults Have Grown to Love Dental Sealants

dca_blog_dental-sealants

Once only placed on children and teens, dental sealants are now becoming popular for adults who are vulnerable to cavities. See if this proven decay defense is right for you.

Ages and Stages for Dental Sealants

No longer just a treatment for kids, today family dentistry specialists are encouraging adults who are vulnerable to cavities to get the decay protection that dental sealants provide. Tooth sealants consist of a liquid gel that gets applied over the cracks and grooves in molars, which often trap decay-causing particles. But once an affordable dentist in Allentown covers these areas with sealants, these particles can’t get caught in the tooth, so they won’t lead to cavities.

Long-Lasting Decay Protection

While it only takes a few minutes to get dental sealants, you’re left with years of cavity protection. In fact, family dentistry experts say that tooth sealants can last up to 20 years with good dental hygiene and professional check-ups from a family dentistry specialist. But over time, tooth sealants can chip or wear away. That’s why family dentistry experts recommend reapplying them about every five years. If you’re interested in the cavity protection of tooth sealants, ask your affordable dentist in Allentown if tooth sealants can save your smile.
