Dental Sealants
Hi, I'm Dr. Tracey.

I believe you deserve a
healthy, confident smile.

If your teeth are prone to developing cavities, our dentist may recommend dental sealants to help protect your smile. Sealants are a type of preventive treatment made from clear or tooth-colored resin material and are a powerful tool in keeping your teeth and smile healthy. This resin is painted onto the chewing surface of teeth, where it forms a smooth coating over the natural pits and grooves of the tooth surface to block out bacteria, food debris and other decay-causing factors. This smooth coating also makes it easier for you to keep your teeth clean with normal brushing and flossing.

Dental sealants are available for both children and adults. Most children receive sealants as soon as their permanent molars come in (between the ages of 6 and 12), but adults may receive sealants at any time if their teeth are prone to decay. Dental sealants can be applied quickly and comfortably during your regular appointments for cleanings and exams. Once applied, your sealants will last for several years to provide long-term protection for your teeth.
