The Benefits of Adult Dental Sealants

The Benefits of Adult Dental Sealants

Although dental sealants are often associated with pediatric dentistry, they can also be a beneficial option for adults. A dental sealant is a protective plastic film that helps prevent tooth decay.

Even with at-home oral health care, some areas of the mouth can be difficult to reach, making it tough to clean properly. Our dentist can determine whether dental sealants are a viable option to help give you extra protection from tooth decay.

Our goal is to make every one of your dental visits as comfortable as possible. Applying dental sealants is a quick procedure that offers substantial benefits. According to the American Dental Association, adult sealants are an effective solution to cavity prevention and to preventing the progression of an early non-cavitated tooth lesion.

With proper at-home care and regular professional dental cleanings, dental sealants can last up to 10 years while effectively preventing tooth decay.
