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 absolutely loved it. The staff was professional and very welcoming. My tooth had to be removed and I have to admit that the dentist is not my happy place. However I felt very comfortable, Dr. Harsini made sure I was in no pain before the procedure. I would totally be returning there sometimes.

My first time in the office. The facility was clean and staff was informative and friendly. All of my questions were answered and then some. My first visit was $46, with that I had Xrays done, photos taken, spoke with a hygentist, and also the physician. The prices are reasonable. One person imparticular that stood out was Erika. She is the dental assistance and not only did she carry a great conversation, she was very informative. She even recieved praises from the hygentist on how well she was "on it". I will be back again.
