Sealants

Think of dental sealants as a barrier against cavities. They’re a plastic material usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth both on top and bottom, where decay occurs most often.

It’s true that thorough brushing and flossing help remove food particles and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth, but toothbrush bristles cannot reach all the way into the depressions and grooves of those back teeth to extract all the food and plaque. Sealants protect these vulnerable areas by “sealing out” plaque and food.

How Do Dental Sealants Work?

A sealant, which is a plastic resin, is easily applied to the tooth by painting it onto the enamel, where it bonds directly to the depressions and grooves of the chewing surfaces. After it hardens, the sealant acts as a barrier to protect the tooth’s natural enamel from plaque and acids. The tooth will be protected from decay as long as the sealant remains intact, and the product we use at Smile Dental Clinics may last several years before a reapplication is needed. Your dentist will check the condition of the sealants and reapply them when necessary during your regular check-ups.

The likelihood of developing tooth decay begins early in life, so children and teenagers are obvious candidates for sealants, but adults can benefit as well.

Update : 5/11/20. I just cant say how amazing Dr. Harsini is he is so attentive, detailed- i had to get a little work done, and when i say no pain! No pain what so ever. Having the patient in a comfortable stat seems to be one of his priority and the staff too. Kudos to Jose the assistant too,was great. Just beyond impressed!!!Today was my first time in this office, after over 9years going to Thomas dental in Phoenix. From the day I made a call to set my first appt- the lady was so nice and sweet.. I wanted to reach thru the phone and hug her. I got a lil tour in the office they explained what each area is for. The Dr. Was just amazing wonderful.. didn't waste time but took the time to chat a lil with me, which was nice. Daisy was amazing and super sweet. Prices are FANTASTIC! Reason why I left Thomas dental is because they quality of service is not like it was before AND not to mention new management tried to pull as fast one on me. Tried to tell my my treatment was over 1,200!!! And smile dental less then 200.00That was disgusting and they tried doing the same thing to my son. We have been patients for years. New management is money hungry very sad.But thankful I found smile dental. Oh and another bonus- their equipment is pretty high tech!! Love it.

Best dental services I’ve had in some time. I’d been without 2 molars for over 5 years and after I got them implanted, they fit perfectly and felt like they’d been there the whole time. Thanks for making eating easier again!

I have gotten my preventative care with Luis done at this practice as well as an implant crown. After waiting 2.5 years to get that crown (life happens), Dr. Harsini and team did an expert job at designing and making sure my crown was perfect. It fits so well and I am FINALLY able to smile confidently again!! Being in the dental field myself, I was so happy to have my smile back. Thank you!!
