Dental Sealants in Plantation

Dental sealants are thin, clear coatings that are painted on the chewing surface of the molars. These back teeth are used for chewing, and their uneven surface is vulnerable to a buildup of plaque. Most cavities occur in these teeth.

Sealants offer protection to your teeth against cavities and bacteria by creating an invisible barrier. They also create a smoother, easier-to-clean surface. In addition to brushing twice a day, flossing daily and visiting our office at least two times a year, sealants will significantly minimize the risk of tooth decay in the back teeth.

Before applying a sealant, the tooth will be cleaned thoroughly to remove any plaque or other deposits. We will then apply an etching gel to the tooth to roughen it slightly. This helps the sealant bond properly. Next, we apply the liquid sealant to the tooth with a brush. This is dried with the use of a special curing light. Finally, we will check to ensure the tooth is properly sealed and protected. Sealants are most commonly used for children, but they are also effective for adults who at high risk of decay.

The entire staff here is great! Friendly, helpful, and most importantly they are good at what they do. I get my regular cleanings here and have also had a wisdom tooth extracted. The Doctor made sure I was totally numb and I had no pain during the procedure. The staff followed up with me and made sure all my questions were answered. Great practice.
