Sealants

Sometimes brushing is not enough, especially when it comes to those hard-to-reach spots in your child’s mouth. It is difficult for a toothbrush to get in between the small cracks and grooves on teeth. If left alone, those tiny areas can develop tooth decay. Sealants give your child’s teeth extra protection against decay and help prevent cavities.

Dental sealants are a plastic resin that bonds and hardens in the deep grooves on the tooth’s surface. When a tooth is sealed, the tiny grooves become smooth, and are less likely to harbor plaque. With sealants, brushing becomes easier and more effective against tooth decay.

Sealants are typically applied to children’s teeth as a preventative measure after the permanent teeth have erupted as a way to prevent tooth decay. It is more common to seal “permanent” teeth rather than “baby” teeth, but every patient has unique needs, and the dentist will recommend sealants on a case-by-case basis.

Sealants last from three to five years, although it is fairly common to see adults with sealants still intact from their childhood. A dental sealant only provides protection when it is fully intact so if your child’s sealants come off, let the dentist know, and schedule an appointment for your child’s teeth to be re-sealed.

What they say

This place was heaven sent. After calling around all day for someone to see my son who was in so much pain and getting turned away for no availability. They offered me an appointment within the next hour of my call. They had speedy and excellent customer service. The doctor Jason Dale was the best. He saw the severity of my son's situation and offered to fit him in the same day and even stayed late after closing to finish the procedure. Jenny, (his assistant) kept my baby laughing and in good spirit the whole way. After the procedure, they were very informative on what to expect and do afterward. They even did a courtesy call to check on him. It Doesn't get any better than that. Hands down they are the best!

I've been going to Dr. Scott Spencer for a year now for an orthodontic treatment. This dental office is by far the best I've been to. The staff is very professional and friendly. I usually ask for Eduardo, one of the ortho assistants; he always does a GREAT job with my braces and is very knowledgeable and funny too. Doctor Spencer works so well and is so kind to his patients. He will take the time to discuss and explain to you the treatment plan and length of the treatment. I am so glad I chose this office to do my orthodontic treatment, they make having braces a good experience. Thanks for all you do!
