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.

Everyone is very nice, and most importantly NOT JUDGEMENTAL, which is what's kept me from seeking dental treatment for far too long. If you're like me, things happen and this filling falls out, then the tooth breaks off, then a crown cracks and before you know it you feel like your mouth is just a hot mess and you don't want anyone to see it because it's embarrassing and your worried about cost. They didn't look down on me because I waited, they just came up with a plan to fix it and a plan to pay for it too. Gladys was wonderful!They explained everything step bystep. I would definitely recommend going here.

Very friendly, I came in nervous after not going to the dentist for some time, they talked to me the whole time to get me to relax and I didn't even realize how quick it went.
