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.

My appointment was bi-annual cleaning and the hygenist saw me early and finished early. Extreme professionalism was exhibited before, during and after the cleaning. Great service with a personal touch.

I was searching for a new dental office when I came across The Dentist of Allen - best choice I ever made! Dr. Kim was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions regarding my concerns and x-rays. Laura, my hygienist, was wonderful! Attentive and thorough - she provided an excellent deep cleaning while being gentle around my sensitive teeth. I’ll be requesting her for all my future appointments!

I called because a crown had popped off while I was flossing, they got me in that day, right at the time of my appointment and had me out in an hour. Awesome team, very friendly and professional.

Great staff and a pleasant experience! The dental hygienist did an outstanding job cleaning my teeth and explaining all of the steps she would be going through during this process. This was the most thorough cleaning I have had in Years. I am glad I switched to this practice that values their customers and the customer experience. I will be recommending them to all my friends! I had another great cleaning experience in October. Very detailed oriented staff that puts their customers first. This just reinforces my decision to switch to this Dental practice. Cynthia was great and gave me a thorough cleaning. I will continue to recommend this practice. If you want great care and a staff that cares for their customers come here.
