Sealant and Benefits

We always advise to brush and floss your teeth to prevent cavity.We also understand that it’s hard job to clean each part of your teeth especially back teeth what we use to chew(Molars and premolars).These back teeth shapes are such that allowed the collection for the leftover food and indirectly place for the cavity causing germs.
-What is sealants?
Sealants is a thin film coating what we apply on the chewing teeth(back teeth) to protect the teeth against caries.
Sealants are the most conservative treatment in the dentistry and can be done without any invasion.
-Is it good for both kids and Adults?
Yes,both children and adults can benefits from sealants.It’s advisable to do it as early as possible to keep the teeth cavity free.
-Can sealants applied over cavities?
Sealants can apply on the the area of early stage of decay to prevent more damage to the tooth,but your dentist has to keep eye on the tooth to make sure the sealant is doing job.Ideally we applied sealants on non carious teeth.

-What is BPA?
It is short form of Bisphenol A, a chemical used primarily to manufacture durable epoxy resins and clear plastic.
-Is there BPA in sealants?
Yes, there is a tiny amount of BPA in sealants but not enough to cause you or a loved one any harm. In fact, you get more exposure to BPA by simply touching a receipt, using cosmetics or coming in contact with dust.
My advice to parents is that we should keep the teeth away from the decay,by placing sealants instead of treating tooth/teeth decay can involve dental materials that have more chemicals than BPA.There are some alternative sealant materials available but not sure they work better than those containing BPA.
There is no health concern to BPA exposure from any dental material.In fact.we get more exposure to BPA by using cosmetics,touching a receipt or coming in contact with dust.It’s less than the amount a person receives from breathing air.
