$99 New Patient Special! Cleaning, Exam, and X-Rays
At Woodland Park Dentistry, we provide our patients with the finest in service and best dental care possible, including cosmetic or restorative procedures, and dental sealants. Even if you brush and floss regularly, cavities can form in your teeth over time. The bristles of a toothbrush cannot reach all the way into the crevices and grooves of every tooth, however, dental sealants can act as an effective barrier against cavities by “sealing” these vulnerable areas.
When performed by a truly skilled dentist, sealants can protect teeth from decay for up to 10 years. When undergoing a regular check-up at Woodland Park Dentistry, a member of our team can even check for chipping or wearing, ensuring that your dental sealants are continuing to defend your teeth as effectively as possible.
The dental team at our practice performs dental sealants that consist of thin, plastic films painted on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth – molars and premolars – that are highly effective in the prevention of tooth decay. On the back teeth, dental sealants are particularly effective, since the back teeth contain hard-to-reach pits and grooves that serve as a host to food debris and built-up plaque.
When you receive dental sealants you can rest easy, knowing you can look forward to a simple procedure with little to no discomfort. In fact, the dental professionals at our facility are able to seal each tooth within only a few minutes.
Before the sealant is applied, each tooth to be sealed will be thoroughly cleaned and dried. After that, the teeth in question are coated with an acidic solution that will help the sealant to bond to the teeth. After that, the teeth will be rinsed and dried, and the sealant is carefully painted onto the tooth. Throughout the brief procedure, will offer a gentle touch, ensuring each patient is as comfortable as possible.
Whether you’re looking for long-term protection for your teeth through dental sealant or any number of similar procedures, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with our dental team.
