Protect Your Smile with Dental Sealants at Dental Magik, East Brunswick

Dental Magik in East Brunswick offers top-quality dental sealants as part of our comprehensive preventive dentistry services. Dental sealants are a simple yet highly effective treatment designed to protect teeth from decay. Ideal for both children and adults, sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars), where most cavities in teeth tend to develop.

Why Dental Sealants?

  • Effective Decay Prevention: Sealants form a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth, preventing decay-causing bacteria from settling in the deep crevices of molars and premolars.
  • Quick and Painless Application: The process of applying sealants is quick, non-invasive, and painless, making it suitable for all ages.
  • Long-Lasting Protection: With proper care, dental sealants can protect teeth from decay for many years, saving time and money on future dental treatments.

The Dental Sealants Process

Cleaning: The tooth is thoroughly cleaned to ensure the sealant adheres properly.
Preparation: The tooth surface is prepared with a special solution to help the sealant bond to the tooth.
Application: The sealant material is carefully applied to the tooth’s grooves and hardened with a special curing light.
Evaluation: Our dentist will check the sealant’s placement and ensure the bite is not affected.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Sealants

Are dental sealants only for children?

While sealants are often recommended for children and teenagers as their permanent teeth come in, adults can also benefit from sealants, especially if they have no decay or fillings in their molars.

How long do dental sealants last?

Dental sealants can protect the teeth from decay for up to 10 years with proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups. During your regular visits, we will check the condition of the sealants and reapply them if necessary.

Can sealants be placed over cavities?

Sealants are applied to healthy teeth without decay. If a tooth has a cavity, it will need to be treated before considering the application of a sealant.

Is the sealant application process painful?

No, the process is painless and quick. There’s no drilling or removal of tooth structure, making it an ideal preventive measure for all ages.
