Dental sealants are thin coatings that work as protective shields that block out germs and food. Sealants are applied on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars) and can prevent cavities (tooth decay) for many years. Once applied, sealants protect against 80% of cavities for two years and continue to protect against 50% of cavities for up to four years. Sealants are a quick, easy, and painless way to prevent cavities.

Some facts about Sealants:
  • Easy to apply and painless
  • They are clear, white or slightly tinted
  • They can work for quite a long time (sometimes even up to 9 years)
  • The sealant can fall off and then will need re-application
  • Great alternative to prevent cavities for kids and teenagers
  • Sealants prevent the most cavities when applied soon after permanent molars come into the mouth (around age 6 for 1st molars and age 12 for 2nd molars)
  • Sealants can also be used for adults if they have worn out teeth or sensitive surfaces to prevent any further decay and protect the teeth from cavities
Come in today to Mosaic Smile Care for an evaluation to see if sealants are an option for you or your children. The procedure is simple and short and our experienced dental hygienists and Dentists can answer all your questions and give you a treatment plan as required. Of course, it is still always best to brush your teeth and maintain oral hygiene at home but it is not always possible due to the shape and position of the teeth. Give us a call today to prevent any decay or cavities that might affect the health of your teeth.
