How Long Does A Dental Sealant Last?

If you are looking for dental sealant, then give our office a call to schedule an appointment. These sealants are highly effective in preventing tooth decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth. You may wonder though, “How long do sealants last?

“Dental sealants have been used and have been proven to be effective since the 1970s. Many studies have shown that they are effective in helping to prevent decay on chewing (occlusal) surfaces. Dental sealants can last many years. If necessary, it is also possible to place a new dental sealant on the tooth,” the experts at Colgate explained.

These sealants are so effective because they protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing just can’t reach. Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
