Dental Sealants

Dental Sealant Application

A dental sealant is a thin coating that a dentist applies to the chewing surfaces of the back of your teeth. To better understand dental sealants, think of them as a raincoat for your teeth. When we apply the sealant, food particles will no longer be able to stay there and produce acids that cause cavities in your teeth. Why? Because your teeth are now sealed. If you’re looking for dental sealants in Langley, Carvolth Dentistry is ready to serve your needs.

Why Might I Need A Dental Sealant?

Teenagers and children are the likely candidates for dental sealants. While brushing and flossing remove food particles and plaque from our teeth, sometimes it becomes difficult to remove the plaque and food from the top surface of back teeth due to deep grooves. The purpose of dental sealants is to protect those vulnerable areas by sealing them out. If your kids are free of cavities in permanent back molars, you can consider applying sealants.  Sealants are ideal for 6-14 years old children because those are cavity-prone years. 

Dental sealants can also be a good solution during the age when a child’s baby teeth have deep depressions and grooves. Make sure your children’s teeth are healthy and not lost too early. Visit us at Carvolth Dentistry in Langley for further assistance!
