Even if you brush and floss your teeth regularly, it can be difficult to reach into all of the grooves of your molars. A dental sealant keeps bacteria out, which can help to prevent cavities.

A Dental sealant forms a shield over your teeth so bacteria won’t settle in.

It is always better to prevent tooth decay and cavities than to fix dental problems later. A dental sealant is a tooth-colored material that is applied to the chewing surfaces of your molars. It forms a protective shield over your back chewing teeth, which helps keep food and bacteria from burrowing into hard-to-reach grooves and fissures.

Are you a candidate for a dental sealant?

This question applies to people of all ages. A dental sealant offers protection for the biting surfaces of your teeth and it is not just for kids. Since you never “outgrow” the risk of developing cavities, dental sealants are a great preventative treatment for adults too. In fact, as you age you produce less saliva that will wash away bacteria. Dry mouth syndrome elevates your risk for cavities.

How long will a dental sealant last?

Consistent quality is how we earn your trust at Lisa Konz Dental Care. To ensure your sealant lasts, we use top quality sealant materials and follow the highest standards of application. Most dental sealants remain effective for several years. During your regularly scheduled dental visits, we will check the condition of your sealant and reapply as necessary.
