About Dental Sealants

 

At Martin Dentistry in the Indianapolis and Fishers area, we offer sealant applications to help prevent tooth decay and cavities, particularly in the hard-to-reach crevices of the back teeth. Sealants consist of a liquid plastic resin that is skillfully applied to the top surfaces of premolars and molars.

Administered by our experienced team; sealants serve as a protective barrier, effectively sealing out plaque, tartar, bacteria, and other harmful substances that can lead to dental issues. By preventing the accumulation of these damaging agents, sealants contribute to maintaining optimal oral health and help our patients avoid the need for complex dental procedures.

When combined with a consistent home oral care routine, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, sealants can provide long-lasting protection for several years. At Martin Dentistry, we prioritize preventive care to ensure the continued health and well-being of our patients' smiles. Schedule an appointment today to learn more about how sealants can benefit your oral health journey.

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.
