Benefits of Dental Fillings and Sealants

  • Prevent cavities and tooth decay
  • Restore damaged teeth
  • Durable and long-lasting protection

What happens when you get a cavity filled?

When you get a cavity filled, the dentist removes the decayed part of the tooth, cleans the area, and fills it with a material like composite resin, amalgam, or porcelain. This restores the tooth’s function and prevents further decay.

What is a dental sealant? 

A dental sealant is a thin, protective coating applied to the chewing surfaces of molars to prevent cavities. It bonds quickly to the tooth enamel, forming a shield that lasts for several years. Sealants are especially useful for children and teens, but adults can also benefit.

  • How long do dental fillings last?

    Dental fillings can last several years, depending on the material used and how well you care for your teeth. Regular dental checkups can help ensure the longevity of fillings. Maintaining good oral hygiene is important to prevent further decay around the filling.

  • Are dental sealants only for children?

    No, dental sealants are not only for children. While they are commonly applied to children’s teeth to protect newly erupted molars, adults without decay or fillings in their molars can also benefit from sealants to prevent cavities.

  • Are dental fillings and sealants safe for children?

     Yes, they are. Sealants are especially beneficial for children as they help protect newly erupted permanent teeth from decay. Early application of sealants can save time and money by preventing cavities and the need for more extensive treatments.
