Sealants in Solana Beach, California

Transforming The Experience of Dentistry Since 2000

Are you concerned about the state of your teeth? Sealants are a thin coating that can help protect against cavities for years to come.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Sealants?

Sealants are popular in pediatric care, since they can help children who are still properly learning how to take care of their teeth. That said, sealants can be useful for patients of all ages who are concerned about tooth decay.

In some cases, we may use them in tandem with fluoride treatment . Our goal is to preserve as much tooth material as possible, but if you’re already experiencing decay, you may need to get fillings .

What to Expect When You Get Sealants

If you’re a good candidate for sealants, there’s absolutely nothing to be worried about. No drills are required. We’ll simply need to perform a regular cleaning, then apply the sealants.

The process of applying sealant should take no more than 30 minutes for your whole mouth. Our curing light dries the sealant within 60 seconds, which means you also don’t have to worry about waiting for the sealant to dry.

Here are some facts to keep in mind before choosing to get this procedure:

  • While they can last for up to nine years, we recommend getting sealants applied every two to four years. This helps maximize their effectiveness.
  • Sealants don’t have any special dietary restrictions. That said, we recommend avoiding ice chewing, which is always bad for teeth.
  • While sealants can help protect against cavities, you still need to brush and floss. Sealants are supplementary, they’re not a replacement for adequate home care.
