Raborn, our team offers top-quality sealant applications as a part of our comprehensive dental health services.

Who Should Get Dental Sealants? Why Dental Sealants Are Important

Dental sealants provide a protective shield over the grooves of your teeth where food particles and plaque are likely to gather. Here's how sealants can benefit you:

  • Prevent Tooth Decay: Sealants prevent food and bacteria from settling on your teeth, significantly reducing the risk of cavities.
  • Easy and Painless Application: The process of applying sealants is quick, non-invasive, and pain-free.
  • Long-lasting Protection: Once applied, sealants can protect your teeth for up to 10 years with proper care.

The Sealant Application Process

Getting sealants is a simple and straightforward procedure at Model Dentistry:

  1. Cleaning: The tooth is thoroughly cleaned to ensure that no debris is trapped under the sealant.
  2. Preparation: The tooth is then dried, and a solution is applied to the enamel to help the sealant bond properly.
  3. Application: The sealant material is painted onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds directly and hardens. This process is often aided by a curing light.
  4. Evaluation: Dr. Raborn will check the sealant to ensure it has set properly and that your bite is not affected.

While sealants are particularly beneficial for children and teenagers as soon as their permanent molars come in, adults can also benefit from sealants, especially if they have deep grooves in their teeth and no fillings or decay.

Caring for Your Sealants

Caring for sealants is easy—just maintain good oral hygiene. Brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and regular dental check-ups at Model Dentistry are sufficient to keep your sealants in good shape and your teeth healthy.
