Dental Sealants

Even the most thorough brushing does not always reach the deepest indentations in the back teeth (molars). Dental sealants fill in these depressions and grooves, creating a smooth surface and successfully preventing the bacterial formation that causes tooth decay and other damage on the biting surfaces of the teeth used for chewing.

Dental Sealants

In a procedure that takes only a few minutes per tooth, our trained staff cleans the tooth and paints the plastic sealant on to the tooth enamel. This coating works like a barrier to prevent plaque from attacking the enamel. A special light may be used to speed the hardening and bonding process. Sealants can help both adults and children, and may be re-applied every few years.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I see the dentist?

Children, teens, and adults should all see us for a regular checkup at least once every six months. Patients who are at a greater risk for oral cancer or gum disease may be required to come in more than just twice a year. Dr. Durand will help determine how often you should visit our office for regular checkups.
