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.

They have been amazing. Clarence has been mine and my husbands hygienist and has been incredible. Given that it’s been a while since we’ve gone to the dentist and we were nervous to go back, he’s done a great job at keeping us at peace and happy during our visits, which we appreciate so much!

Very honest and affordable!Love the family vibes in this office- not money hungry like other offices I been in the past. I highly recommend.The dr gives you different options if available- not like other offices that they make you think you only have one option- which is the most expensive route 🤔. Everyone in this office makes you feel great.

Nothing but positive things to say about this location. Everything from the cleanliness to the awesome customer service. This location encourages you to want to return & this is coming from someone who's disliked the dentist a lifetime. 10/10!
