What are Dental Sealants?

Dental Sealants is a kind of dental treatment which protects teeth from decay. It is a thin coating placed on the chewing surface of the teeth as it protects against decay. They are usually applied on the back teeth(premolars and molars) to prevent tooth decay. Dental Sealants are odorless, are both clear tooth color and tasteless.  A dental sealant protected tooth is less vulnerable to decay.

Who should get Dental Sealants?

Dental Sealants can be placed on

  • Childrens Teeth

  • Teenagers Teeth

  • Adult teeth.


Tooth Decay can happen to anyone at any stage or time.  As your dentist, we recommend you should apply dental sealants early in life once the first set of permanent molars develop. 


Second molars are just as vulnerable as the first and we discuss this as a dental treatment option once the second molars start to appear. 

As per WebMD, children should get sealants on their permanent molars and premolars as soon as these teeth come in. In this way, the sealants can protect the teeth through the cavity-prone years of ages 6 to 14. Adult teeth can also benefit from dental sealants.


How does your Dentist apply Dental Sealant?
  1. First the teeth that are to be sealed are thoroughly cleaned.

  2. Each tooth is then dried, and cotton or another absorbent material is put around the tooth to keep it dry.

  3. An acid solution is put on the chewing surfaces of the teeth to roughen them up, which helps the sealant bond to the teeth.

  4. The teeth are then rinsed and dried.

  5. Sealant is then painted onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds directly to the tooth and hardens. Sometimes a special curing light is used to help the sealant harden.
