Sealants and Their Oral Health Uses

Posted .

Do you suffer from oral health issues including increased tooth sensitivity when eating foods or drinking liquids? You may be suffering from tooth decay and are unaware of it. Because cavities are so prevalent in all ages, always attend regular checkups with your dentist to check for any tooth enamel damage that may be occurring.

If your tooth enamel is wearing down, you may need dental sealants. Dental sealants are tooth restoration treatments that apply clear gels to your teeth to correct holes or signs of dental erosion. They are then sealed and hardened with a specialized light to further protect your teeth from the dangers of tooth decay.

According to many studies, the application of dental sealants can lower your risk for tooth decay in your molars by nearly 80%. It works by preventing the harmful acids that cause dental erosion from even penetrating your tooth enamel. In most cases, sealants can easily last up to ten years before they need to be repaired or reapplied.
