Sealants at Premium Dental Solutions

Sealants are a coating that is attached to teeth. The sealants are made from plastic to prevent the decay of your teeth. These sealants are generally placed on the teeth at the back, known as the premolars and molars. The purpose of sealants is to prevent tooth decay. At Premium Dental, we provide a sealant treatment where the liquid is painted onto the surface of the teeth, where it can then become “cured” with the help of white light. In doing so, this results in a bonded layer of sealant over each tooth’s enamel.

Should I Get Sealants?

How do you know if you are a good candidate for sealants? Since it is likely to develop decay in grooves of molars and premolars, both teenagers and children are good candidates for sealants. Adults can still benefit from this procedure. As soon as permanent premolars and molars start to come in, you should consider getting sealants. Sealants will protect the teeth through ages six to fourteen when cavities are highly prevalent.
