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.

I have never been to a dental practice that has been more thorough in all of my life. The attention to detail that each staff member took in order for me to understand the whole process of my dental evaluation, treatment plan, and goals was phenomenal. Everyone kept asking how I was doing they were pleasant they kept offering bottles of water. They helped me make the best informed decisions for myself. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

I went for my 6 months cleaning & checkup today. My dental hygienist Alexis was awesome. She did a great job on my cleaning & was very gentle. I didn’t experience any discomfort. I had an issue with tooth sensitivity & when the dentist came in he knew exactly what the issue was. He adjusted my bite by slightly adjusting the tooth & it feels great tonight. I was afraid I was going to need a crown but no unnecessary dental procedure was even suggested. I truly appreciate that as that’s not always been the case at other dental offices I’ve been to. Smile Dental Clinic is awesome!! Thank you to all the staff. You all are awesome!!
