At the end of the appointment, our dentists meet with the parents to give a detailed description of the work completed, provide after care instructions, issue prescriptions if needed, and answer any questions that the parent may have. Wherever you choose to take your child, it is important for the parent or guardian as well as the dental professionals to consider the visit from a child’s point of view.
Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic "coating" is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively "seals" the deep grooves acting as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can't reach. Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
Children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
