Feel free to schedule an appointment with our dentist today; we would be happy to evaluate your smile and overall oral health.
Dental sealants are an affordable, comfortable, and effective preventive dental care option that can provide additional protection against bacteria, acid, plaque, and even tartar. Tooth sealants are a liquid, BPA-free plastic that is applied to the teeth and allowed to dry, creating a barrier between the teeth and the destructive effects of bacteria, plaque, and tartar. Tooth sealants can last for many years with proper at-home and professional dental care. In the event your dental sealants are damaged, they can be easily fixed. During your routine visits, your dentist will check to make sure your sealants are in good condition and providing the protection you need.
Did you know that the chewing surfaces of your teeth are not actually flat? If you look at them, you’ll notice pits, grooves, and depressions, the perfect area for debris, bacteria, and even plaque to thrive. As these areas remain unbrushed, tooth decay and cavities can begin to form. With dental sealants, these depressions, pits, and grooves are sealed, allowing the patient to properly clean their smile.
Getting dental sealants takes only a few minutes. Once your teeth have been prepared, the dental sealant is painted directly onto the teeth and allowed to dry. Once dried, a protective barrier is formed.
