How Long Do Dental Sealants Last?

Posted .

Dental sealants are a good method to fight off cavities and tooth breakdown in your molars. They are a great investment that will take your oral health far. But how long exactly? To answer that, we have put together this post for you on the longevity of dental sealants. Continue reading if you’d be interested to find out more information.

Dental sealants are regularly applied in a process that ensures high-quality results. The dentist may clean the teeth, apply an oral sealant gel, extricate superfluous gel, re-clean the pearly whites and seal the gel with a light to apply dental sealants to your pearly whites. This service has been proven to bond the dental sealant to chompers well, and when it’s done correctly, dental sealants will last for a very long amount of time.

However, bacteria are hard on teeth, and the oral sealants defending your molars will take the bulk of that damage. When they do, they are slowly worn down. Across several years, the oral sealant may be broken down to the point where it needs to be replaced. Your dental staff will review the state of your dental sealants during your routine visits and endorse reapplication when the oral sealant needs to be reapplied.
