Is UltraSeal XT plus different than other tooth sealants?Yes! UltraSeal XT plus has been the leader in sealants since 1998. It has an excellent retention rate—meaning it stays on the teeth longer—and has always been BPA FREE.
Does UltraSeal XT plus or UltraSeal XT hydro contain BPA?No. Bisphenol-A (BPA) is a potentially harmful chemical used in some plastic materials including bottles, cans, home electronics, and even tooth sealants. However, Ultradent has always been aware of the risk associated with BPA and has never used it in UltraSeal XT plus or UltraSeal XT hydro. We've even hired a third-party laboratory to test our sealants, and they confirmed they have a 0.00000% rate of BPA. To learn more, visit our blog.
Does tooth sealing hurt?No. Sealing a tooth is painless and requires no needles or numbing treatments. It only takes a few minutes to seal each tooth.
How long do sealants last?Sealants generally last several years. But UltraSeal XT plus and UltraSeal XT hydro last much longer than competitors’ sealants. Your dentist will examine the condition of your sealants during your regular dental visits to ensure they’re intact. Tooth sealants can be replaced if they wear down.
Can tooth sealants benefit adults?Yes. Although sealants are more popular for children because they’re more susceptible to cavities, they can be beneficial for adults as well.
Is it true that Sealants for Smiles uses UltraSeal XT plus?Yes. Sealants for Smiles is a nonprofit organization that provides oral health education and tooth sealants to children in lower-income schools. Nonprofit organizations are subject to more stringent standards on the type and quality of materials used in their programs. One of the reasons Sealants for Smiles opted to use UltraSeal XT plus was because of its long-standing reputation in the dental field.
