Dental Sealants

Dental SealantsDental sealants are a type of preventative care that provide a barrier between your teeth and bacteria. They are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of your molars, which tend to contain pits and fissures that are hard to clean. Most tooth decay occurs on these surfaces and can ultimately lead to tooth loss or other serious dental health problems. Our Phoenix dental sealants expert can help you determine if dental sealants are right for you.

Good brushing and flossing are part of the foundation of good dental health. Proper brushing techniques remove plaque and debris from the surfaces of your teeth, but the bristles cannot reach into the pits and fissures of the molars. Oral bacteria can then access any remaining food and turn it into an acidic byproduct, which erodes the enamel and can lead to a cavity. Our expert in dental sealants in Phoenix can apply sealants to protect these vulnerable areas and make it easier to keep your teeth clean.


Dental Sealants Phoenix

Sealants are fast and easy to apply. Our Phoenix dental sealants expert will begin by cleaning the tooth and applying a special liquid that helps prime the surface of the tooth. The clear sealant is then painted onto the tooth and cured with a special light. The resin material bonds to the chewing surface of the tooth and protects it from plaque, bacteria and acid attacks. They can hold up to normal chewing forces and can last several years before requiring replacement. At every checkup, we will evaluate your dental sealants to determine if any of them need to be replaced.

Dental sealants are most frequently recommended for children and teens, but adults can also benefit from them. Our expert in dental sealants in Phoenix also recommends brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily or using an inter-dental cleaner daily, eating a balanced diet, limiting snacks and visiting us every six months or as recommended to keep your smile healthy and free of decay.
