Sealants for Stronger Smiles at Reagin Family Dentistry
One crucial aspect of maintaining a cavity-free smile is the use of dental sealants. These thin, protective coatings are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars) to help prevent tooth decay. In this dental education guide, we’ll delve into the world of dental sealants, exploring what they are, how they work, their benefits, and why they might be the perfect preventive measure for you and your loved ones.

What are Sealants?
Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings that are typically applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth. They are most commonly used on the back molars and premolars, where decay is more likely to occur due to their rough and uneven surfaces. These protective coatings act as a barrier, preventing bacteria and food particles from getting trapped in the deep grooves of these teeth.
At Reagin Family Dentistry, we use a tooth-colored resin material for our sealants, which blends in seamlessly with your natural teeth. This means they are virtually invisible and won’t impact the appearance of your smile.
