Dental Sealants

We believe in doing whatever we can to prevent tooth decay. Dental sealants can offer major protection against cavities. Your teeth are covered with a sticky film of bacteria called plaque. When you donít clean your teeth after eating this bacteria converts sugar and starch into harmful acids that attack tooth enamel. Brushing and flossing can help remove food but the bristles cannot reach all the way into the depressions and grooves of the tooth.

Dental sealants is a plastic material applied to the non-restored surfaces of the back teeth, premolars and permanent molars. The plastic material bonds into the grooves and pits of the tooth acting as a barrier, protecting the enamel from plaque and acids. At each dental visit we will check the condition of the sealants and reapply if necessary. Sealants are just not for children, adults can benefit from sealants as well. Some insurance companies cover dental sealants, they realize it is less expensive to cover a sealant than to cover a restoration. Sealants put extra prevention power in fighting tooth decay.
