Sealants are an important step in the prevention of tooth decay. Sealants are a thin, plastic coating which is painted on the chewing surfaces of the teeth; typically the back premolars and molars.
This painted on liquid quickly bonds into the grooves and depressions of the teeth to form a shield. These grooves in the teeth are very susceptible to decay, and they are extremely narrow making it difficult to clean. With the use of sealants, Dr. Gruner and his staff have been able to help Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach, Jupiter and Wellington sealant patients prevent infection and decay.
Am I a Good Candidate for Sealants in Palm Beach Gardens?
Our most common sealant patients in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter and Wellington, Florida are children and teenagers. At these ages, the likelihood of developing decay in the depressions and grooves of premolars and molars are very high. This can help protect the teeth in the cavity-prone years, ages 6-14.
Adults are also candidates for sealants to help protect from cavities, although it is less common. In some cases, sealants may also be recommended for baby teeth when there are depressions and grooves. These baby teeth will help hold the correct spacing for permanent teeth, so it is important to keep these healthy as well.
