What Are Dental Sealants?

Because of their shape, the molars and premolars tend to trap more food and tartar, making them more susceptible to cavities. To help protect them from disease and decay, our team may recommend dental sealants. These thin preventive coatings are composed of a transparent or tooth-colored substance that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the permanent molars. When they're set, sealants work to safeguard the enamel and produce a more even surface, which is easier to brush. Dental sealants offered at Dr. Todd K. Baum, DDS, PC not only help protect from cavities, but they can also reduce your children's needs for fillings or other corrective care later on. Talk to Dr. Todd K. Baum during your routine dental cleaning at our Grand Ledge, MI practice to learn if you or your child could benefit from sealants.

What Can I Expect Getting Dental Sealants?

Before beginning the treatment, Dr. Baum will perform an assessment of the teeth to find out if dental sealants will be the ideal treatment for you or your child. To prepare the mouth for dental sealants, a professional on our team will clean the teeth to remove any plaque, food particles, and germs from the chewing surfaces. The enamel is then dried, and a fine sheet of sealant product is then distributed precisely into the rifts via a small brush. A special curing light is then placed over the tooth, which will harden the sealant casting within approximately 10 – 20 seconds. After each of the sealants is applied, our staff will examine your bite for alignment and give you tips on how to effectively take care of your dental sealants. During your future visits, we'll check the condition of your sealants and let you know when a touch-up is needed.

About Us
Can you see or feel dental sealants?

Dental sealants are typically transparent or tooth-colored, so they blend in with the natural color of your teeth. Once they are applied, no one should be able to see them. As for feeling them, dental sealants are very thin and smooth, so most people do not notice them at all. Our Grand Ledge, MI, team will ensure that the sealants are applied evenly for maximum comfort.

Are dental sealants only for children?

While most commonly used for children, dental sealants can also benefit adults who are prone to cavities or have deep grooves in their molars. Talk to Dr. Baum about your options during your next visit to our practice. We know that everyone can benefit from a strong and healthy smile, regardless of age.

Do dental sealants require any special care?

No, dental sealants do not require special care. However, to protect the rest of your teeth, it's important to continue practicing good oral hygiene habits such as brushing twice a day and flossing daily. Additionally, regular dental check-ups at Dr. Todd K. Baum, DDS, PC ensure that the sealants are still intact and doing their job effectively.
