Okay, they’re not really secrets that your Corona dentist would like to share with you. However, when it comes to learning about dental sealants, the details that can prove surprisingly beneficial to you as you make choices for yourself or your children can seem like mysterious secrets that you’ve never quite stumbled across once you learn about them. Find out a bit more regarding sealants and adulthood. You may be surprised by what you discover!

Your Kids And Sealants In Adulthood

First, let’s talk about the dental sealants you’re providing for your children and what these particular sealants have to do with their futures as adults. Of course, you know that when you help your children prevent decay in childhood, it makes for teeth that are healthier, free of fillings, and in better shape by the time adulthood shows up. It also encourages your kids to develop positive feelings about brushing (since decay is less likely). Bonus: Sealants will remain in place for about 10 years. That means your child’s sealants will probably still be offering protection when your child is 18 and possibly beyond, explains your Corona dentist!

Your Own Adult Smile And Sealants

Now, you know that sealants are a wonderful option for children. However, you may sometimes want to ask your Corona dentist if you can have them, too. The truth is, sometimes sealants make a wonderful preventive solution for adults, particularly when there’s a problem that makes it difficult for you to control bacteria levels in your mouth. For instance, if you suffer from chronic dry mouth or other issue, sealants may be very beneficial for your oral health. All you have to do is ask.
