Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants could be the thing for you

Ok, ok…the topic of “dental sealants” doesn’t sound very appealing but don’t let the boring name fool you!

This simple and quick procedure is one of the easiest things we can do to prevent cavities and tooth decay.

At Smile 360 we recommend sealants as preventive dental care for children. Children’s teeth have small grooves and depressions in them that make it harder to properly clean them through brushing alone. Sealants provide protection for these small depressions and grooves and help keep plaque from forming in the small crevices. However, even though it’s ideal to get sealants as a child, adults can also be good candidates for dental sealants.

Sealants can be applied during a quick visit to our practice. After we clean and prepare your teeth, the sealing solution is painted directly on tooth surfaces. Then, the sealant is hardened by a curing light and we send you on your way—you don’t even have to wait to eat and drink. Routine dental checkups will allow us to keep tabs on your sealants and ensure that they remain in good condition.

The 'wings' of the bridge are also prepared. A strong composite resin cement is used to bond the wings to the back of the teeth.
