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.

Dr. Harsini and his staff are caring and very professional. To be honest I don’t like going to the dentist and Dr Harsini and his staff made my visit very pleasant . They made sure I was comfortable and kept checking in to make sure I was doing ok. Dr Harsini was honest on what I needed and provided me with options. I would recommend Dr Harsini to all my family and friends. If you are looking for a dentist who keeps it real and gives you options then give Smile Dental Clinic a call.

This place is incredible. The staff is personable and efficient. Dr. Harsini is a very gentle dentist and a “what you see is what you get” kinda guy. Just had an implant with a bone graft…..piece of cake! The name SMILE is perfect!
