Our office practices the highest standard of sterilization available in the market. Between all patient appointments, we sterilize every surface in the room, place every instrument through an autoclave machine (high pressure and heat sterilization process), and protect all surfaces for the safety for our patients.
Dental sealants act as a barrier to prevent cavities. They are a plastic material usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (premolars and molars) where decay occurs most often. Thorough brushing and flossing help remove food particles and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth. But toothbrush bristles cannot reach all the way into the depressions and grooves to extract food and plaque. Sealants protect these vulnerable areas by "sealing out" plaque and food.
