Dental sealants are applied to children’s teeth to 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. Although brushing and flossing help remove food particles and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth, 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.
Our office is family friendly! Oftentimes it is hard to find the time for busy parents to bring their children to the dentist. We offer "at the same time” family appointments for this reason. We can see all family members together by scheduling their checkups with three or four different hygienists. The parents can be seen at the same appointment as well. We love saving time for busy families!
