Dental Sealants in Boynton Beach, FL

ABOUT DENTAL SEALANTS

What Are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are a great way to protect your teeth and maintain good dental health. At Aberdeen Dentistry in Boynton Beach, FL we can use dental sealants to protect your teeth from cavities by constructing a barrier between bacteria-loaded plaque and your permanent tooth enamel.

Your back teeth, or molars, often have many small grooves and indents on their surfaces that trap food particles. These particles can stick there for a long time because your toothbrush can’t completely remove them. Getting dental sealants is a gentle procedure that proactively protects the outer layer of your teeth, and prevents cavities in children.

Who Benefits from Dental Sealants:

  • Children and teenagers – As soon as the six-year molars (the first permanent back teeth) appear or any time throughout the cavity prone years of 6-16
  • Adults – Tooth surfaces without decay that have deep grooves or depressions.
  • Baby teeth – Occasionally done if teeth have deep grooves or depressions and child is cavity prone.

The dental sealant application can be done in our Boynton Beach, FL office in just one visit while you are getting your teeth cleaned. Once your teeth are professionally cleaned, your dentist will prep your teeth to accept the resin by using a soft gel. The resin hardens quickly under UV light and is painless.

What are dental sealants used for?

The purpose of sealants is to help seal and protect teeth against decay, which is why they’re particularly useful for young children. While sealants are no substitute for an active oral health care regimen that includes frequent brushing, flossing, and rinsing, they do add a second line of defense for children who are still in the early stages of forming healthy habits.

Veneers are created of a porcelain material that is matched to the surrounding teeth. Veneers are highly resistant to staining. Veneers are last longer than bonding, with the potential of lasting 15 to 25 years or more, whereas Composite dental bondings may last 5 to 10 years. This all depends on your home health and how you take care of your dental work.

The restoration you pick typically depends on your specific needs and your ideal treatment outcome. Generally, tooth bonding is selected for smaller changes in a healthy mouth, while veneers can be better for someone who needs a more substantial change to their smile.
