What Are Dental Sealants?
Crevices in the chewing surfaces of the molars usually hold onto more food debris and tartar and are more prone to cavities. Dental sealants are an effective part of preventive dentistry that can shield the teeth from damage resulting from decay. These fine defensive sealants are composed of an invisible or milky-colored material that is painted onto the surfaces of molar or premolar teeth. As soon as they're set, dental sealants protect and create a smoother surface on treated teeth for easier maintenance. Dental sealants from The Dentist of Allen can help prevent tooth decay and lessen your child's needs for fillings or other corrective care later on. Talk to a member of our team during your biannual dental visit at our Allen, TX practice to find out if you or your child may benefit from dental sealants.
What Can I Expect During the Sealant Process?
Before your treatment, we will examine the teeth to decide if dental sealants are the right solution for you or your children. To prepare the teeth for dental sealants, we polish the teeth to get rid of any tartar, food debris, and bacteria. The teeth will be dried, and a fine sheet of sealant material will be distributed evenly into the crevices with a tiny brush. A curing light will be set over the tooth, which solidifies the sealant coating within about 20 seconds. As soon as the sealants are set, our professionals will assess your jaws for alignment and provide you with tips about how to efficiently care for your sealed teeth.
When your session is over, you or your little one can resume your daily routines. It is crucial to stop eating sticky or tough foods for a couple of days to keep your sealants intact as they settle into your molars. We also recommend maintaining an effective dental hygiene routine by flossing and brushing the teeth at least twice a day. Dental sealants can remain in good shape for several years with proper oral hygiene. The Dentist of Allen will evaluate your teeth during annual oral exams and let you know when the sealants should be reapplied.
The Dentist Of Allen Reviews
Took my kids here for the first time. The office staff was friendly and quick. Our wait time was little to none and they have late hours so the kids don’t miss school!
I love the thorough cleanings and professional care I receive here. I couldn't ask for a better dentist and am very glad my family chose to come here. I recommend this office 100% and some. See you in 6 months.
I have been going to David and Dr. Kim since 1986. He is the only dentist I will let touch my mouth. They are honest and they will always be up front with me. I really like the girls in the front office also. He hires the best!!! Their prices are the same as other dentists. The equipment is state of the art. I like the way they decrease the pain of any shots that has to be put in my mouth. Do you want to pay for dental work that will have to be redone in a few years? If you do, do not go to this office. They always use the best and the most cost effective treatment.
Friendly and knowledgeable staff, it’s an easy process from start to finish. The dental hygienists are awesome, and do a great job. I have seen both dentists there and I would recommend them both, Dr. Koelker and Dr. Kim. The front office staff does a lot to make sure I am able to schedule and change appointments if needed, and have even reached out after hours via text to double check my insurance several nights before my appointment, to see if I needed to switch to private pay to make sure I wasn’t potentially billed beyond my limits. That’s great service.
Yes I recommend The Dentist of Allen. Both my wife and I have been patients for close to 20 years. We both think Dr Kim is great, along with the rest of the staff.
