Dental Sealants are a Quick Preventive Treatment for cavity-prone Teeth

Elevation Dental Studio believes preventive dentistry is the most cost-effective way to keep your teeth and gums problem-free. So, if you are concerned about  cavities, we offer dental sealants to prevent tooth decay. Teeth sealants placed by Dr. MitzAnn Edmond and the team help seal out decay-causing bacteria, keeping your teeth healthy. 

Dental sealants effectively keep tooth decay at bay , provided you observe diligent oral hygiene.

What are dental sealants?

Teeth, especially molars, have tiny grooves on the chewing surfaces. No matter how you brush these teeth, bad bacteria and food debris can still collect within them, causing tooth decay. 

A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating applied on the chewing surfaces of teeth. Dental sealants seal out harmful bacteria and prevent food particles from settling in these hard-to-clean areas. 

Dental sealants are common for children because kids are susceptible to tooth decay thanks to insufficient oral hygiene and poor dietary choices. While sealants are commonly applied in pediatric cases, they are equally suitable for adults prone to cavities.

How dental sealants are applied

Applying dental sealants is a straightforward and painless procedure completed in one convenient appointment. Dental sealant treatment starts with thoroughly cleaning your teeth to remove all traces of harmful bacteria. Then, we will dry your teeth before applying a special agent to create a strong bonding surface.

Next, we’ll dry your teeth again and then carefully paint the dental sealant on the prepared teeth. Finally, we’ll use a special light to harden the material, creating a durable coating. The process only takes a few minutes per tooth but lasts many years with proper care.
