Long-haul Protection and Dental Sealants

Posted .

Dental sealants are a great way to fight off cavities and tooth breakdown in your molars. They are an great investment that will take your dental health a long way. But how long exactly? To answer that, we have put together this post for you on the longevity of dental sealants. Keep reading if you’d be interested to find out more information.

Dental sealants are usually applied in a procedure that ensures high-quality results. The dentist may clean the pearly whites, apply an oral sealant gel, extricate superfluous gel, re-clean the teeth and seal the gel with a light to apply oral sealants to your teeth. This service has been proven to bond the oral sealant to chompers well, and when it’s done properly, oral sealants will last for a very long amount of time. However, bacteria are hard on pearly whites, and the oral sealants protecting your molars will take the impact of that destruction. When they do, they are slowly worn down. Across years, the oral sealant may be broken down to the point where it needs to be reapplied. Your oral staff will evaluate the condition of your oral sealants during your routine appointments and endorse reapplication when the oral sealant needs to be reapplied.
