Dental Sealants Near You
Dental sealants are an excellent preventative measure. They are placed in the grooves and depression of the back molar to prevent tooth decay. While they are typically used for children and pre-teens, anyone can benefit from sealants. If you’re interested in receiving dental sealants near you, please contact us to schedule an appointment.
What are Dental Sealants?
Dental sealants are a special plastic material placed on top of your molars to prevent bacteria and food particles from buildup. They are used to prevent cavities and tooth decay in the hard-to-brush areas of your teeth.
Who Should Receive Dental Sealants?
Typically, dentists provide dental sealants for children as they can have difficulties thoroughly brushing their back molars and preventing cavities from forming. However, dental sealants can benefit adults, as well, especially those who are more prone to tooth decay or cavities. Dental sealants are a simple procedure that almost anyone is suitable for. If you find it challenging to brush your molars or are more prone to dental decay, we will be happy to provide you with dental sealants.
The Process of Receiving Dental Sealants
If you’re looking to receive dental sealants in Winnipeg, the process is quick and non-invasive. We will:
- Clean your teeth
- Dry and isolate your tooth
- Place a solution on your tooth, so the sealants adhere better
- Apply the sealant onto your tooth
- Harden the sealant with an LED light (or it will harden on its own, depending on the type of sealant used)
The process takes as little as a minute and requires no recovery time. After you receive your dental sealants, you can continue your daily routine without any disruptions. Dental sealants usually last around three to five years, but they can last up to a decade with proper care.
