Along with an excellent daily hygiene routine, dental sealants are one of the best ways to keep your teeth healthy and cavity free for a lifetime.

Discover how dental sealants can protect your teeth and preserve your oral health.

What Are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are thin coatings of a plastic composite that your Birmingham dentists will apply to the surfaces of your teeth. The material is designed to bond to the grooves of your teeth, creating a protective layer that keeps out plaque and tartar.

Most commonly, sealants are recommended after all of a child’s permanent teeth have erupted. Since younger patients are especially prone to tooth decay during this time, the extra protection offered by sealants helps defend their healthy smiles. However, patients of any age can benefit from dental sealants as well. When you visit Saad Oral Health & Beauty, one of our experienced dentists will examine your teeth and determine if dental sealants are an appropriate treatment for you.

Placing Your Dental Sealants

If one of our dentists recommends dental sealants, our Birmingham team can complete the simple procedure in just one appointment. Applying the sealants takes only a few minutes per tooth, and the treatment process is non-invasive and pain-free.

The procedure begins with one of our dentists thoroughly cleaning and drying your teeth. Afterwards, they’ll apply a bonding agent that helps secure the sealants to your tooth’s surface. Your dentist will then paint the liquid sealants onto your teeth. Finally, a special light is used to harden them, solidifying the bond. In no time, you’ll leave our office with the knowledge that the health of your smile is protected.
