Common Questions About Dental Sealants


If you or your child is particularly vulnerable to cavities, your dentist may use a teeth sealant to stop decay in its tracks. Dental sealants are plastic resin coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and sometimes premolars to prevent food and plaque from reaching the grooves and depressions where toothbrush bristles can’t reach. The process is painless and only takes a few minutes. After the tooth is cleaned and prepared, a teeth sealant is painted onto the surface where it quickly hardens. Once a tooth is sealed, it is no longer vulnerable to the acids that cause tooth decay.

Who Benefits from a Tooth Sealant?

Children, teens, and adults who are prone to dental decay can benefit from sealants. Small children should have them applied as soon as their first permanent teeth erupt.

Why Should I Consider Dental Sealants?

When you seal teeth away from plaque and prevent decay, you’ll save time and money by avoiding more costly dental treatments like root canals, fillings, and crowns.

What if the Dental Sealant Accidentally Covers a Cavity?

The sealant will provide a barrier that doesn’t allow bacteria or acids to access the cavity, so the decay will not progress.

Are Sealants Good for Baby Teeth?

If your baby’s teeth have pits and grooves, sealing them may be a good option. Baby teeth are important for proper spacing of permanent teeth, so it’s important to prevent them from falling out early.

How Long Does a Teeth Sealant Last?

With regular care and minor repairs as necessary, dental sealants can effectively seal teeth for up to ten years.

Will My Insurance Pay for a Sealant?

Some dental insurance plans do cover preventative treatments like sealants. Check with your insurance company to be sure.
