Effective Protection-Dental Sealants in NW Calgary

At Northland Village Dental Centre, we are committed to helping you preserve your smile and natural teeth. One of the means by which we do this is by providing dental sealants in our NW Calgary clinic. Dental sealants consist of thin layers of resin, which are placed onto the fissures, grooves or pits in a tooth to prevent decay. Typically, they are most often used on molars. While sealants are helpful for everyone, they are especially beneficial for young kids prone to getting cavities. Reach out to us to learn more about dental sealants in NW Calgary.  

What Are Dental Sealants? 

A dental sealant is a thin plastic coating applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth. It is meticulously placed to ensure it does not interfere with the bite while effectively preventing the accumulation of plaque and bacteria on the tooth surface. While it does not reverse existing damage, it is a protective barrier, halting further deterioration. 


By opting for dental sealants, patients can safeguard their oral health and stop the advancement of cavities, ensuring long-term dental wellness.  

Dental Sealants to Protect Your Teeth from Cavities

While dental sealants cannot guarantee that decay will never happen, they remain one of the most effective means of preventing decay on the surfaces where they're placed. Regular brushing and flossing can't permanently remove the food particles stuck on the tooth surface. Over time, the accumulation of these particles can lead to cavities. Dental sealants act as a barrier between these particles and the tooth surface, effectively preventing them from causing any damage to your teeth. 


Dental sealants can significantly reduce your risk of cavities along with regular dental cleaning and check-up .Getting a sealant is easy and does not hurt. They are durable, last long, and can be cleaned like your regular teeth.

How Do Dental Sealants Work? 

When Should You or Your Child Get Dental Sealants? 

If you have remaining natural teeth, consider opting for dental sealants. While dental sealants are suitable for anyone, initiating the process early, especially when your children start developing molars, can provide an additional shield for their teeth. This proactive approach could reduce the need for regular visits to the dentist for cavity fillings, ensuring optimal dental health. 

Benefits of Dental Sealants 

The benefits of dental sealants are 


Protection against cavities, plaque, and bacteria: Dental sealants act as a barrier, preventing cavity-causing bacteria and plaque from settling into your teeth' deep grooves and crevices, particularly in the molars and premolars where decay commonly occurs. Sealing off these areas, sealants help safeguard your teeth against decay and infection. 


Reduction of deep grooves: Many teeth have naturally deep grooves and crevices that can be tough to clean deeply with regular brushing and flossing. Dental sealants fill these grooves, making the tooth surface smoother and less prone to trapping food particles and bacteria.  


Quick and painless process: The application involves cleaning the teeth, applying a bonding agent to prepare the surface, and then carefully painting the sealant material onto the teeth. Once applied, the sealant is cured with a special light, forming a protective shield over the tooth surface. 


Long-lasting and durable: Dental sealants are designed to withstand chewing pressures and can last several years with proper care. Routine dental check-ups will ensure your sealants are in good condition and provide ongoing protection against decay.
