Dental Sealants

At Premier Dentistry, we offer dental sealants as a proactive measure to protect your teeth against decay. This simple yet effective treatment is part of our commitment to preventive dental care, helping patients of all ages maintain a healthy smile.

Understanding the Importance of Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a protective coating applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). They are particularly beneficial for:

  • Sealing the deep grooves and crevices in molars where food particles and bacteria often accumulate.
  • Acting as a barrier against plaque and acids that cause tooth decay.
  • Being most effective for children and teenagers who are at a higher risk for cavities, but also beneficial for adults.

Sealants are a proactive step in maintaining oral health, effectively preventing the onset of tooth decay and cavities in the most vulnerable areas of the mouth.

The Simple and Painless Application of Sealants

Getting dental sealants is a quick, painless and noninvasive procedure:

  • The teeth are thoroughly cleaned and prepared for the sealant application.
  • A special gel is applied to the chewing surfaces of the teeth, then washed off.
  • The sealant material is then painted onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds directly and hardens.
  • A curing light may be used to help the sealant harden into a protective shield.

This entire process takes only a few minutes per tooth and provides long-lasting protection.

Benefits of Dental Sealants

  • Effectively prevent cavities and tooth decay.
  • Noninvasive with no drilling or removal of tooth structure.
  • Quick and painless application.
  • Long-lasting, often several years under the forces of normal chewing.
  • Suitable for children, teens and adults at risk of cavities.
