About Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a simple treatment to guard against decay and cavities. Sealants are thin, pliable plastic materials that can be applied to the tops of the back teeth (premolars and molars). After they are positioned, dental sealants block out plaque, tartar, bacteria, and food particles to protect from many problems, such as cavities. Sealants can last many years with proper care including a regular home oral hygiene routine. Dental sealants not only improve your oral hygiene and prevent cavities, but they can also save money at future dental exams at Martin Dentistry. Talk to one of our skilled dentists, Drs. Matthew Martin, Stephanie Martin, or Lynn Marshall, during your dental exam at our Fishers, IN office to decide if sealants are a good choice for you or your child.

What to Expect with Sealants

Applying sealant is a fairly easy procedure that involves plastic resin being painted on the premolars or molars, where it bonds to the tooth and hardens. The sealant fills in and fits into the grooves of the teeth, creating a comfortable, protective barrier. As a preventative method to prevent decay or even tooth loss, sealants work to maintain the health of the tooth for years. The dentist will determine if a sealant is a good option for each patient during their consultation and if needed, will schedule a procedure date. Once the sealant has hardened on the tooth, the patient can continue with their regular routine.

Sealants Treatment Aftercare

Patients can anticipate returning to their regular routines immediately following the procedure. The dentist will provide them with any special instructions before they leave our office. To ensure optimal oral health, patients should maintain a regular oral hygiene routine that includes brushing twice a day, using mouthwash, and flossing. It is also recommended that you continue to schedule annual examinations and bi-annual teeth cleanings.
