About Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a preventive dental care option which utilizes a BPA-free, liquid plastic. The dental sealant is used to create a barrier between the teeth and the environment inside of your mouth. When we eat, bacteria in the mouth produce acid, eventually turning into plaque. This acid and plaque eat away at the enamel of our teeth, leading to tooth decay, cavity formation and even periodontal disease. Dental sealants can protect the teeth from this, reducing the patient’s risk for tooth decay, cavities and a range of other complications.

Why Dental Sealants?

Along with creating a barrier between the teeth, dental sealants also seal pits, grooves and depressions found on the chewing surfaces of the teeth. These areas are the perfect place for debris, bacteria, plaque, and tartar to hide. When creating the barrier on the teeth, the dental sealants also block these areas, preventing anything from becoming stuck.

Getting Dental Sealants

Getting dental sealants in Tucson is a super quick and painless process. First, your dentist will clean the teeth and properly dry them. Next, the dental sealant will be painted directly onto the teeth and allowed to dry. Once dried, your teeth and smile have additional protection against decay and cavities.
