Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a proactive and preventative treatment offered at Premier Dentistry of Gettysburg, primarily aimed at protecting the teeth against decay. They are especially beneficial for children and teenagers, but can also be effective for adults at risk of cavities.

Sealants are thin, protective coatings made from safe dental materials that are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth – the molars and premolars. These teeth are most susceptible to decay due to their grooves and fissures, which can trap food particles and bacteria. The sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel.

The application of dental sealants is a simple, painless, and non-invasive procedure. It requires no drilling or removal of tooth structure, making it an ideal preventive measure for maintaining dental health. By effectively sealing out plaque and food, sealants help prevent tooth decay and can last for several years before a reapplication is necessary.

At Premier Dentistry of Gettysburg, our goal is to provide comprehensive preventive care, and dental sealants play a significant role in our approach to maintaining the long-term oral health of our patients.  Be sure to contact us today and set your appointment for protecting your teeth and your smile!
