Dental Sealants: A Smart Prevention Tool – Newfield Dental

Protecting your teeth against decay is crucial, and dental sealants are one of the most effective tools available to prevent cavities, especially in children and teenagers. At Newfield Dental, we specialize in applying high-quality sealants as part of our comprehensive approach to oral health.

Understanding Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a protective coating applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). This coating seals the grooves and crannies that tend to collect food, preventing bacteria from settling and causing decay. The application process is quick, painless, and non-invasive, making it ideal for patients of all ages, particularly those most at risk for cavities—children and teens.

Benefits of Dental Sealants

The primary benefit of dental sealants is their ability to prevent decay and cavities in tooth surfaces where regular brushing and flossing may not be as effective. Sealants are known to reduce the risk of decay by nearly 80% in molars. This proactive treatment can save patients considerable expense and discomfort by preventing the need for fillings, crowns, or caps in the future. Furthermore, sealants are a cost-effective solution that can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
