Inlays and dental sealants
The application of dental sealants to developing molars and premolars is an integral part of oral health prevention. It is commonly used in children and adolescents, but it is also beneficial for adults at risk of developing cavities.
Did you know that cavities are more likely to form in the pits and fissures of the teeth? Why? Because food debris and bacteria can easily collect there. Even with good brushing, the bristles of the toothbrush cannot remove all the debris and food particles. This is how tooth decay begins, within these pits and fissures.
One of the benefits of sealants is that they protect the teeth that are more difficult to reach from decay. This avoids more costly treatments and repairs later on. Don’t worry, this procedure is completely painless! It is quick and, above all, very natural-looking. The sealant is white, so nothing is visible.
The sealant is applied after cleaning. A gel solution is then applied to make the sealant adhere to the teeth. The sealant is then cured with a special lamp. This procedure doesn’t require anaesthesia and can be done in one appointment.
