Dental Sealants at Our Langley Dental Office

Dental Sealants in Langley & Surrey

Dental sealants are liquid coatings that are applied to the surface of teeth as a method of preventing the development of cavities.

Pits, grooves and imperfections on your teeth provide excellent breeding grounds for opportunistic decay. Regular brushing alone is sometimes insufficient to completely clean these intricate structures. Dental sealants are designed to fill in and protect the chewing surfaces on your teeth, preventing the intrusion of bacteria and other contaminants that cause decay.

Dental sealants have been available since the 1960s but didn’t attain widespread use until the middle 1970s. Since that time they have become very popular thanks to their effectiveness. Sealants have been shown to be effective in preventing additional damage even on teeth that have begun to decay. Young children are especially good candidates for the application of dental sealants because tooth decay has not yet had a chance to become established.

Application of Dental Sealants in Langley and Surrey

Before applying a dental sealant your dentist will clean the surface of the affected tooth and then “etch” it using a chemical substance that encourages proper adhesion. The sealant is then applied and a light source is employed to dry the surface more quickly. For best results sealants should be reapplied after a period of 5 to 10 years. For more information about dental sealants in Langley and Surrey, please contact our office.
