If you would like a simple, efficient way to protect your teeth, our skilled dentists may recommend dental sealants. We offer dental sealants to children and adults as a quick preventive service. To learn more about the benefits of dental sealants, call our office today!

Dental sealant can be performed by our dentists during your routine checkup appointment for your convenience. This treatment consists of a clear, resin material being spread on the surface of your teeth to protect your smile from decay and disease. The sealant blocks bacteria and food particles from your teeth so you are better protected from tartar and plaque that can lead to gum disease and other conditions.

Dental sealants are usually a treatment recommended for children, but we offer sealants to adults when necessary. Children’s permanent molars often require sealants, since this treatment smooths the surface of your child’s teeth so they can better clean their teeth just by brushing them with a toothbrush. Adults may need sealants if their teeth are more prone to decay, or if they did not receive sealants as a child.
