Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a vital preventive measure, specifically designed to protect vulnerable areas of teeth from cavities. This thin, protective coating is applied by our dentist and team to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars, acting as a barrier against the accumulation of food particles and bacteria that lead to decay.

Application Process

Dr. Jai V. Patel, DDS and Dr. Rahil H. Patel, DDS meticulously clean and dry the tooth surface before applying the sealant. The sealant material is then painted onto the pits and fissures of the tooth and allowed to bond securely.

Benefits of Dental Sealants

Sealants create a smooth, protective layer that prevents bacteria and debris from settling into the deep grooves of teeth. The application process is quick, painless and non-invasive, often requiring no anesthesia.

Dental sealants are particularly effective in preventing cavities in children and teenagers, whose newly erupted permanent teeth are more susceptible to decay. They can also benefit adults who are prone to cavities and have deep grooves in their teeth.

Long-Term Protection

Dental sealants offer long-lasting protection, reducing the risk of cavities for several years. Regular dental check-ups ensure sealants remain intact and functional.
