Can Adults Take Advantage of Dental Sealants?

dca_blog_dental-sealants

Dental sealants are no longer just for kids. Now, adults of all ages at high risk for cavities are discovering the advanced decay protection of tooth sealants.

The Older Appeal of Dental Sealants

For years, dental sealants were considered a treatment for children and teens. Now, family dentistry specialists are placing this dental protection on people of all ages who run a risk of cavities. See, tooth sealants are simply a special liquid solution that an affordable dentist in Abingdon will brush over the narrow nooks and deep crevices of the molars. These are areas where food and plaque often get trapped and are difficult to reach with a toothbrush. As a result, these particles soon develop into cavities. But sealing these areas off with dental sealants keeps this decay at bay.

The Dental Durability of Tooth Sealants

Dental sealants are very strong and can last a long time. In fact, family dentistry experts say tooth sealants can stay strong and secure for up to 20 years with good oral care and maintenance. Yet since normal wear can cause tooth sealants to diminish over time, your affordable dentist in Abingdon will probably recommend having them reapplied every five years. If you’re interested in the cavity protection of dental sealants, ask about this procedure at your next dental check-up.
