Dental sealants can provide a layer of protection to your teeth eliminating problems with decay and the development of caries. At Cameo Dental Specialists, we recommend the application of dental sealants to all of our younger patients who have developed most of their adult teeth, and to our patients who suffer from continual decay problems. The application of this product is simple, painless, and will make a significant difference in your oral health. a specialist at Cameo is happy to evaluate to get a better idea of your level of plaque and help you decide if this product could be beneficial for you.
Dental sealants are a simple product that can have a huge impact on your health. Starting in liquid form, a specialist at Cameo simply paints the sealants on teeth after they have been cleaned by our professional hygienist. Once placed and dry, the sealants will remain on the surface of the teeth for several years. This layer will serve as a barricade from food and plaque, blocking debris from settling on teeth and in the nooks and crannies, or pits and fissures, that are so often missed when brushing.
The application of dental sealants has reduced the incidence of patients developing caries or cavities significantly. Studies done by the American Dental Association has reported a reduction of 80% in the development of cavities following the application of dental sealants. In fact, more and more, we are seeing our minor age patients reach adulthood without ever experiencing the drilling and filling of a cavity.

Developing proper hygiene habits is still your number one source of protection from decay, even with sealants in place. Dental sealants are not intended to replace regular brushing and flossing, but to enhance it. We will continue to encourage your children and our patients on proper techniques and oral care.
