Frequently Asked Questions

Pediatric Dentistry East LA

Yes, dental sealants are safe and effective for both children and adults. They have been used for decades to prevent tooth decay.

Sealants can last up to 10 years with proper care. However, they should be checked regularly during dental check-ups and can be reapplied if necessary.

Sealants are applied to healthy teeth without decay or fillings. If a tooth has a filling or decay, other restorative treatments are available.

Maintaining sealants is easy! Just continue to brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit our office for regular cleanings and check-ups.
