Dental Sealants

Our dental sealants are a preventive treatment that forms a protective shield on the chewing surfaces of your back teeth, effectively sealing out bacteria and food particles. With our experienced team and state-of-the-art techniques, we can help safeguard your smile.

What Are Dental Sealants?

Sealants are designed to prevent plaque and bacteria from entering the deep grooves in your back teeth. These areas are harder to reach when brushing, making it difficult to maintain good oral health.

Our team often recommends sealants for children and teenagers, as they are more susceptible to tooth decay. However, adults with no previous restorations and good oral health can also enjoy the benefits of dental sealants.

What to Expect During Treatment

The process of applying sealants is short, easy, and does not require drilling or the removal of any tooth structure. After the teeth are cleaned, a special gel is placed on the chewing surfaces for a few seconds. Each tooth is then washed and dried before the sealant is painted on. Typically, we shine a special curing light on the tooth to quickly harden the sealant.

Why Are Sealants Important?

  • Protection against tooth decay: Dental sealants have been shown to reduce cavities by up to 80%
  • Long-lasting protection: Sealants can last up to 10 years, reducing the need for extensive dental treatment in the future
  • Cost-effective solution: Sealants can help avoid expenses associated with treating dental cavities and the need for restorative dental procedures
  • Improved oral health outcomes: Dental sealants can be beneficial if your child has a weakness for sweets or difficulty sticking to good dental cleaning habits.
