Frequently Asked Questions
Can adults get dental sealants?
Dental sealants are primarily used for children and teenagers as a guard against developing decay. However, adults who don’t have fillings or decayed teeth may benefit from sealants in some cases. Just as with younger patients, sealants can protect your teeth from bacteria and prevent severe oral health issues including cavities, tooth loss, and more.
How long do dental sealants last?
With proper oral hygiene, dental sealants can last for up to ten years. It’s essential to visit Dr. Snider for regular check-ups so he can make sure your sealants aren’t chipped or starting to wear away. If he finds any issues, one of our hygienists can repair your sealants by adding more of the specialized resin material.
Can dental sealants be removed?
Yes — however, sealants are typically only removed if they get severely damaged or worn down. This is usually followed by replacing the old sealants with new ones. Replacing a damaged sealant is easy and we can complete the process in one short appointment.
