Dental Sealants

When you want to keep something safe - your money, a letter, a secret - you seal your bag, the envelope, your lips. The same protective treatment can be applied to your teeth with the power of dental sealants.

What is a dental sealant?

As their name suggests, dental sealants are thin coatings (typically made of plastic or other materials) that adhere to the teeth, serving as a protective barrier or seal. Simple to apply, sealants are an excellent protective shield for preventing decay, keeping plaque and food particles away from hard to reach grooves in the back teeth.

Who should get sealants?

Sealants are a viable option for children and teenagers who have just had their adult molars come in. As the years go on, they’ll be extra protected from cavities, even if they hit the Halloween candy jackpot. Adults who don’t have fillings in their molars are also good candidates for sealants.

What’s the process like?

Sealants can be applied in a matter of minutes. Each tooth that requires a sealant will be thoroughly cleaned and dried. Your dentist will place cotton or another drying material around the tooth, applying an acid solution to the area to roughen the surface. The tooth is rinsed and dried again and then the sealant is painted onto the enamel, bonding it to the surface.

"The staff is very friendly and and extremely attentive to any needs and makes helpful suggestions for any work that needs to be done.  They are an excellent dental center.  I definitely need to go more often.  They are definitely a five star business."
