Dental sealants, a protective measure offered by Dr. Anne Casson, are thin, plastic coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. This preventive treatment helps shield vulnerable areas from decay-causing bacteria and acids.

How Dental Sealants Work

The chewing surfaces of back teeth contain grooves and pits where bacteria can accumulate, making them susceptible to cavities. Dental sealants act as a barrier, filling in these crevices and creating a smooth surface that is easier to clean and less prone to decay.

Ideal Candidates for Sealants

Dental sealants are commonly recommended for children and teenagers as their permanent molars emerge. However, adults can also benefit from sealants, especially if they have deep grooves or a history of cavities.

The Application Process

Applying dental sealants is a quick and painless process. Our dentist and team will clean and dry the teeth, then apply a special gel to prepare the surface. The sealant is then painted onto the tooth, where it bonds and hardens.

Long-lasting Protection

Dental sealants provide durable protection, typically lasting several years. Regular checkups with us ensure that sealants remain intact and effective, providing ongoing defense against decay.
