Advantages of Receiving Dental Sealants

Posted .

Have you heard about some of the advantages that you can enjoy from receiving dental sealants on your back teeth? Dental sealants can be safely applied to the smiles of patients of all ages, starting at the age of six when the first set of adult molars begin to erupt. We invite you to learn more about how dental sealants can help you and your family have improved oral health.
We apply dental sealants directly to the tooth enamel on the back teeth to provide an additional layer of protection for the molars. Following the placement of the dental sealant on a back tooth, we use a light source to harden it so that your teeth can be stronger and have better protection. Typically, dental sealants can can last around a decade before they need to be reapplied or repaired.
To enjoy the best possible results, we typically provide sealants when a child is receiving the first set of adult molars. According to the Centers for Disease Control, receiving sealants can make children three times less likely to develop cavities during their childhood.
If you would like to learn more about the benefits of dental sealants for adults and children, we invite you to call Dr. Sula Umansky and our team at 281-829-5000 today. We would be happy to help you to make an appointment with our dentist to discuss whether you should receive dental sealants in Katy, Texas.
