Dental Sealants In Silver Spring & Germantown, MD

Dental sealants can be an effective safety measure for preventing cavities from forming. Patients typically receive sealants to protect small, vulnerable grooves in the teeth. R3 Dental Group provides sealants and other services to residents of Silver Spring, Germantown, and Washington, D.C.

Complimentary Orthodontic Examination for Patients of All Ages

What Are Sealants?

Dental sealants are plastic resins that bond and harden in the deep grooves on your tooth’s surface. When a tooth is sealed, the tiny grooves become smooth and are less likely to harbor plaque. With sealants, brushing your teeth becomes easier and more effective.

R3dental The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children first visit an orthodontist around the age of seven; however, orthodontic treatment is not exclusive to children and teens, with about one in every five orthodontic patients being over the age of 21.

When Are Sealants Appropriate?

Sealants are typically applied to children’s teeth after their permanent teeth have erupted as a preventive measure against tooth decay. However, adults can also receive sealants on healthy teeth. It is more common to seal permanent teeth rather than baby teeth, but every patient has unique needs, and your dentist will recommend sealants on a case-by-case basis.

How Are Sealants Applied?

Sealants are simple and quick to apply to the teeth. The teeth are first thoroughly cleansed and then dried to ensure a strong bond. Then, the sealant is painted onto the enamel and begins to bond to the tooth within minutes. In some cases, this process is accelerated with the use of a curing light.

How Long Do Sealants Last?

Sealants typically last from three to five years, although it is fairly common to see adults with sealants still intact from childhood. A dental sealant only provides protection when it is fully intact, so if your sealants come off, let your dentist know and schedule an appointment for your teeth to be resealed.
