Sealants

Sealants

There are tiny grooves and pits on certain teeth that can make it very difficult to keep food and plaque from causing decay in your child’s teeth. Sealants allow our team to essentially “seal out” these harmful “sugar bugs” and drastically reduce the risk of decay. This treatment is fast and effective and can be completed in one visit. Dr. Anya and her team will clean your child’s teeth, and then the teeth to be sealed will be conditioned and dried. The sealant material is flowed into the grooves of the tooth and then allowed to harden while your child is still in the office. There are no needles, no drills and most patients experience no pain. These sealants can protect your child’s teeth for many years if they are cared for properly.
