Can you eat and drink normally with dental sealants?
Dental sealants are a protective coating applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth to prevent cavities. They are safe and effective in reducing the risk of decay. While dental sealants can make teeth feel slightly different, they do not affect one's ability to eat or drink normally. The sealants are durable and can withstand the forces of chewing and drinking. However, it's essential to maintain good oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing regularly, to ensure the sealants remain intact and effective.
