Dental sealants are handy shells that your dentist, Dr. Shuyuan Julian Yang, offers at Shuyuan Julian Yang, DDS to help his patients have the strong and healthy smiles they need. These shells are made of a thin plastic and they coat the entire surface of the tooth. Once they are hardened, they shield the bacteria and other harmful substances from the enamel. This can help you maintain a top-notch smile and oral health.
Dental sealants are usually used to protect children’s teeth. This is because children don’t always have pristine oral hygiene and they are more vulnerable to dental issues. But, adults can benefit from dental sealants as well. As long as you don’t have a cavity or dental filling in the tooth, it can be protected from a sealant.
The process involved in placing a dental sealant is simple and painless. It will begin by your dentist deeply cleaning the tooth being treated. Then, he will roughen the surface with an acidic solution (this will help the sealant adhere to the tooth). Next, he will dry the tooth and will paint the solution onto the enamel. Finally, he will harden the sealant with a special light.
