Dr. Nadia Bahramnejad and Dr. Haley Wilson provide dental sealants to help protect your smile from tooth decay. While sealants are most often provided for children and are frequently considered a pediatric treatment, the truth is that patients of all ages can benefit from receiving sealants. This simple preventive treatment works to block decay-causing factors and help you maintain a healthy mouth and smile.
Dental sealants serve as an effective preventive measure to safeguard your teeth against decay. Our skilled and experienced dentists may suggest this treatment to protect your dental health. Composed of a clear or tooth-colored resin material, dental sealants are carefully applied to the chewing surface of your teeth. By forming a protective barrier, they effectively block out harmful bacteria and food debris that can lead to tooth decay and cavities.
The smooth coating created by dental sealants covers the natural pits and grooves on the tooth surface, making it easier to maintain proper oral hygiene through regular brushing. While children are often the primary candidates for sealants, as their permanent molars erupt between the ages of 6 and 12, adults with vulnerable or previously decayed teeth can also benefit from this treatment.
The application process for dental sealants is quick and comfortable, typically requiring just one short visit to our practice. In fact, sealants can often be applied as part of your regular appointments for cleanings and exams. Our dedicated team will ensure your comfort throughout the procedure, leaving you with an added layer of protection against dental decay.
