Dental sealants are a good method to fight off cavities and tooth erosion in your molars. They are a great investment that will take your oral health a long way. But how long exactly? To answer that, we have amassed this post for you on the longevity of oral sealants. Continue reading if you’d like to find out more information.
Oral sealants are typically applied in a service that ensures high-quality results. The dentist may clean the teeth, apply a dental sealant gel, get rid of surplus gel, re-clean the teeth and seal the gel with a special light to apply dental sealants to your teeth. This service has been proven to bond the oral sealant to teeth well, and when it’s finished properly, oral sealants last for a very long time. However, bacteria are ruthless on chompers, and the oral sealants guarding your molars will take the majority of that damage. When they do, they are slowly worn down.
Across several years, the oral sealant may be broken down to the point where it needs to be reapplied. Your oral staff will inspect the state of your dental sealants during your appointments and suggest reapplication when the dental sealant needs to be redone.
