GMCClinics Dental Sealant Dr. Silvia Macaya Green Community Dubai

Help your kids maintain a healthy teeth through Dental Sealants

Nov 15 2017 By Dr. Gilberte Rechdan - Specialist Dentist Prosthodontics

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are sprayed onto the surface of your teeth, usually the molars at the back, that keep out bacteria and acids that cause tooth decay.

The benefits of using a sealant

Sealants seem like a very simple solution to fighting tooth decay and cavities and they are. A simple procedure followed by annual check-ups and regular brushing will ensure you a healthy smile for many years. Brushing, flossing and fluoride mouthwash should not be neglected and are still recommended even after a sealant is applied. However, sealants give you an extra layer of protection against tooth problems especially in young children.

The duration of sealants

With proper care, regular brushing and flossing, a good sealant can last up to a decade and even longer. They do not need to be removed or replaced and generally wear away from constant use over the years.

The procedure, what to expect and what not to

When going to the dentist to get a sealant, your dentist will check your dental history to make sure you do not have any pre-existing conditions or any other issues they may need to know before undertaking the procedure. You, or your children, will first have your teeth thoroughly examined and professionally cleaned. Once that’s completed, an acrylic resin is applied to the chewing surfaces of your teeth and a light is placed above the sealant to let it bond with the teeth. The whole process takes a few minutes to complete, is mostly painless and lasts for years.

The best time to get a dental sealant

Dental sealants are generally applied onto the teeth of children as their new and delicate teeth are far more prone to cavities and other problems. Sealants can also be used on teens and while there are no problems in getting dental sealants as an adult, prevention is always better than cure.

The cost of dental sealants

The cost of dental sealants varies on factors such as the number of teeth you want the sealant applied to. You’ll also need to check if your insurance covers dental services such as dental sealants or if you will need to pay for this all yourself. If you dont have insurance, now is the best time to have this done. GMCClinics Green Community branch is having winter offer for Dental Sealants. 

In conclusion

A good sealant is no replacement for proper dental hygiene and care. Regular brushing, flossing, using a mouth wash combined with a dental sealant will ensure that you have a lifetime of healthy white smiles.
