Dental Sealants

Why Are Dental Sealants Important?

Dental sealants play a crucial role in preventing cavities and tooth decay.
By coating the indentations in your teeth, they create a barrier that shields
against plaque and decay. Studies have shown that sealants can reduce
the risk of cavities by up to 80 percent and can last for up to a decade.

How Our Team Can Help: Quick and Easy Sealant Application:
Dental sealants provide an extra layer of protection to your teeth, keeping
plaque from forming in the small crevices. Our team often recommends
them to children because they have deep grooves in their teeth that
brushing alone can’t effectively clean. This makes them a great choice for
kids who have a sweet tooth and/or struggle with proper dental hygiene.
Applying dental sealants is a simple and non-invasive process that does
not require drilling or removal of any tooth structure. After cleaning the
teeth, a special gel is placed on the chewing surfaces for a few seconds.
The teeth are then washed and dried, and the sealant is painted on. To
finish, we use a special light to harden the sealant.
