Sealants

Sealants are highly effective in preventing tooth decay and cavities on your molars and premolars. These areas are the most susceptible to cavities due to the anatomized grooves.

Typically, children get sealants on their permanent molars and premolars as soon as these teeth come in. These sealants can protect the teeth through the cavity-prone years of ages 6 to 14. However, adults without decay or fillings in their molars can also benefit from sealants.

The process of applying sealants is easy and fast. The application steps are as follows:

  • We thoroughly clean the teeth
  • The teeth are dried
  • A liquid solution is put on the chewing surfaces of the teeth
  • The solution is cured using a special curing light

Sealants act as a barrier and protect the enamel from plaque and acids. They may last for several years before a reapplication is needed. While the sealant remains intact, the tooth surface will be protected from decay.

Sealants are not a substitute for brushing your teeth. It is important to maintain proper oral hygiene and keep up with professional dental cleanings. Also, sealants do not protect between the teeth, so it is essential to continue to floss daily.

Sanders Family Dental was listed as open during the state shutdown. Absolutely a great experience, they were quick to return a weekend call, everyone was so friendly there. I did a zoom meeting with Dr David, he was informative, honest, pros and cons of having a root canal. When I got in, they went over everything again, all said and done, we decided an extraction was the best choice. I actually felt at ease going in for work, mainly because of the knowledge, personality, and thoroughness was shown before, during, and after with the follow up call to check on me the next day. Thanks again!

I had an emergency with my tooth and needed an extraction done. Dr. Sanders did a excellent job listening to my concerns and walking me through the procedure. I would highly recommend this place!
