Dental sealants are a proven way to protect the chewing surfaces of your teeth from decay. Each tooth is essential to your oral health and sealants protect your teeth by applying avery thin amount of composite. With Sealants Dr. Slava can seal and protect teeth from harmful disease and decay. Preventive dentistry like dental sealants is a better financial investment than treating decay after it has started. In the past dental sealants were commonly associated with pediatric care to children’s first permanent back teeth, but today dentists recognize that adults can benefit from this treatment as well.
Sealants are not permanent. With normal wear dental sealants generally last about five years, but can wear off or chip off earlier in certain instances. Also, sealants do not prevent decay between teeth or the onset of gum disease, so regular home care and dental visits are important.
