Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a powerful tool in preventive pediatric dentistry, playing a crucial role in protecting children’s teeth from decay. These simple yet effective treatments are an essential part of our dental care services, aimed at safeguarding your child’s oral health.

Understanding Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, or molars. These sealants act as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids that contribute to tooth decay. Typically clear or slightly tinted, sealants blend seamlessly with the natural color of the teeth.

The Sealant Application Process

The process of applying dental sealants is quick, painless and non-invasive. Here is what it involves:

  1. The tooth is thoroughly cleaned.
  2. It is then dried and an acidic solution is applied to roughen the surface for better adhesion.
  3. The tooth is rinsed and dried again.
  4. Finally, the sealant is painted onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds directly and hardens.

  • Long-lasting protection for years.
