Dental Sealants Near You
Tooth decay most often begins in the deep grooves of back molars known as fissures and pits. Teeth that have these pits and grooves can be challenging to clean and are therefore more susceptible to decay. One easy way to solve this problem is to get dental sealants. Dental sealants protect your teeth by sealing the deep fissures in your teeth and creating a smooth surface for easy cleaning. At Ipswich Bay Dental, we are happy to provide dental sealants near you.
How Do Dental Sealants Work?
Dental sealants are essentially a thin, plastic coating that is applied to the chewing surfaces of your premolars and molars. They can be applied by our dentist or dental hygienist in a simple and quick procedure.
When you choose to get dental sealants in Ipswich, the process will begin with our dental professional thoroughly cleaning and drying your teeth to prepare them for the sealants. They will then apply a special solution to your teeth to help the sealants bond correctly to your teeth. Next, they will carefully paint the sealant onto each tooth, covering all the fissures and grooves. Finally, they will use a special curing light to harden the sealants.
When Are Dental Sealants Necessary?
The most common reason that individuals choose to get dental sealants in Ipswich include:
- To lower the risk of tooth decay in adult teeth
- To prevent the formation of cavities in younger children and teenagers
- To protect cavity-prone milk teeth
Dental sealants are an excellent form of preventative dental care and are simple and quick to place. If you are prone to cavities, then speak to your dentist about dental sealants near you.
