My dentist wants to apply a sealant to my teeth. Know anything about this?

I just got back from the dentist and he says the sealant that I had put on 8 years ago is wearing off and I need another coat applied. Supposedly I have deep crevices in my teeth and it's hard to keep them completely clean with just a toothbrush and floss.  

 

He wants to put another coat and I'm thinking I probably shouldn't let him do this.  I researched it and the only negative thing I found is that some of the sealants have BPA in them.  Even if the one he uses doesn't have BPA, it is still made of plastic and is just so unnatural it seems like it just can't be good.  

 

He also said that I have a tiny pit in one of my teeth on the side of a filling and said he can clean that out before he puts the sealant and just put the sealant without having to fill it and it will be fine.  

 

My other question would be, if I don't get the sealant or the filling, does anyone have experience with naturally getting rid of cavities? I know there are websites and posts about this.  Just haven't had a chance to look into it yet.  

 

Any help will be appreciated! 

 

Much love! Erin

I am not familiar with sealants but my wife'[s teeth rebuilt themselves eating raw...

that's awesome!  Did she actually have cavities that went away?
That is awesome. How long did it take?

Hey Alycia,

 

I guess I should have given more information in my post! ;)

 

I'm not extremely knowledgeable about sealants, but as far as I know they are just a coating that your dentist puts on your teeth to help prevent decay.  Also, in my case, it decreases the depth of the crevices in your back teeth, making them easier to clean.  I found out today while researching sealants that they are made from plastic and some contain BPA.  So if you do get it, make sure the one your dentist uses doesn't contain BPA. 

 

Much love!  

Thanks Shawna!! That was very informative.  I believe that the "pit" next to my existing filling does have decay.  It started out as a little brown spot that didn't have a pit, now it's a brown spot around a little pit.  So I'm assuming that decay caused this pit?  I could be wrong.  

 

I do not have any existing cavities, only that little pit.  So I'm hoping I improve the state of my teeth by living more naturally.  Any specific tips for this other than doing 811?

 

Thanks so much for the information!  If anything, I think I will just have the tooth with the pit in it sealed, not my whole mouth.
