About Dental Sealants

To help prevent tooth decay and cavities in the crevices of the back teeth, sealants are often applied to seal out plaque, tartar, bacteria, and other substances that are harmful to the teeth. Sealants are a liquid plastic resin that can be easily applied to the top of the premolars and molars. At Martin Dentistry in the Indianapolis area, Drs. Martin, Martin, and Marshall offers sealants to their patients to keep their teeth healthy and avoid complicated dental procedures. Along with a good home oral care routine, sealants can protect the teeth for several years.

What to Expect

Applying sealant is a fairly easy procedure that involves plastic resin being painted on the premolars or molars, where it bonds to the tooth and hardens. The sealant fills in and fits into the grooves of the teeth, creating a comfortable, protective barrier. As a preventative method to prevent decay or even tooth lose, sealants work to maintain the health of the tooth for years. The dentist will determine if sealant is a good option for each patient during their consultation and if needed, will schedule a procedure date. Once the sealant has hardened on the tooth, the patient can continue with their regular routine.

Treatment Aftercare

Patients can anticipate returning to their regular routines immediately following the procedure. The dentist will provide them with any special instructions before they leave our office. To ensure optimal oral health, patients should maintain a regular oral hygiene routine that includes brushing twice a day, using mouthwash, and flossing. It is also recommended that you continue to schedule annual examinations and bi-annual teeth cleanings.
