Sealants CATEGORY DESCRIPTION
When it comes to preventing tooth decay, dental sealants are among the most effective materials for the treatment of patients with vulnerable teeth. These vulnerabilities lead to recesses in both the front and the back of the mouth, which can create to conditions for caries to form. Sealants are an important preventative product in the operatory that can help in caries prevention.
Sealants have been in development since the 1960s. They’re commonly used by clinicians to treat young children with incoming permanent molars. However, adult patients who are susceptible to decay may also be treated with sealants. Newly formed permanent teeth are especially susceptible to tooth decay as they grow and can be treated the same as with younger children. This is because decay is more likely to form in areas where food and bacteria can build up in between the other teeth. Many are available in convenient formats, making the application simple and easy.
Back and front teeth have two different types of recesses that form. For this reason, sealants should be applied differently depending on a patient’s decaying area. Back teeth are susceptible to fissures, while front teeth can develop cingulum pits. Sealants fill in these pits and fissures to smooth over the surface area where the teeth are in the process of growing so that patients don’t have to worry about unwanted bacteria getting into the difficult spaces.Tooth decay is one of the most common oral issues for clinicians to treat and easy to prevent with the right material. Sealants are important to patients’ overall dental care because of their proven ability to make it easier for patients to keep their teeth cleaner. By providing the best care and preventative materials, clinicians can ensure that patients have a care-free experience and healthier overall.
