Shielding Your Teeth with Expert Care
Protect your teeth from decay and cavities with our advanced Dental Sealants treatment at Munno Para Dental Clinic in Smithfield, SA. Skillfully applied, our sealants offer long-lasting defense, blending seamlessly with your natural teeth.
Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). Made from a plastic resin, sealants effectively shield the deep grooves and fissures of these teeth, preventing food particles and bacteria from settling and leading to cavities.
Dental sealants act as a protective shield against tooth decay and cavities. By covering the intricate grooves of the molars and premolars, they prevent the accumulation of plaque and food, reducing the risk of cavities significantly.
Dental sealants are typically applied when the first permanent molars come in, usually around the age of 6-7, and again when second molars come in during the early teenage years.
No, sealants are clear or tooth-colored, making them virtually invisible.
The process is quick, often completed in just a few minutes per tooth.
No, sealants and fluoride work together to prevent tooth decay. Sealants protect the chewing surfaces, while fluoride protects the smooth surfaces of teeth.
