DENTAL SEALANTS IN HONOLULU

Children are more likely to develop cavities based on their eating and drinking habits and sometimes poor brushing and flossing! We can help you and your child avoid cavities by placing sealants to cover the susceptible parts of teeth.

SEALANTS, THE SIMPLEST WAY TO PROTECT AGAINST CAVITIES

Dental sealants are a great, cost-effective way to protect your teeth from cavities. A sealant is a thin, tooth colored coating on the chewing surfaces and grooves of teeth to seal against tooth decay. Even though brushing and flossing regularly is necessary for good oral health, sometimes the bristles of a toothbrush cannot remove all the food and plaque debris that may hide in the deeper grooves of teeth. Our team is ready to help you protect your smile in just one short and comfortable visit to our practice. By blocking out the food and bacteria debris that lead to tooth decay, the sealant prevents decay and other dental problems. The dental sealant forms a smooth surface over the natural pits and grooves of the tooth surface, which also makes it easier to effectively clean your teeth with normal brushing.

Seal out tooth decay

Sealants can be placed in the pits and fissures of baby molars, pre-molars, and permanent molars of children and adolescents. Adults can also benefit from sealants as well to protect their teeth from cavities if they are susceptible to decay. Dentists recommend getting sealants as soon as permanent molars erupt to lessen the chances of developing cavities in these lifelong teeth.

BENEFITS of DENTAL SEALANTS

  • Sealants can help save money in that it prevents more costly dental procedures like fillings, root canals, and crowns.
  • Sealants can provide protection for up to 10 years if they are maintained. The best maintenance for dental sealants is to brush and floss regularly and avoid sticky and chewy candy.
  • Brushing and flossing regularly is necessary for good oral health, but sometimes no matter how well you brush, the bristles of a toothbrush cannot remove all the food and plaque debris that may hide in the crevices of teeth. Bacteria can build up in these grooves, placing you at greater risk for tooth decay. Sealants will help smooth those crevices so bacteria and food cannot get stuck!
