Dental Sealants


Brushing and flossing is the best way to remove plaque and food particles from your teeth, but it is hard to get into all the nooks and crannies, especially on the back teeth. At Smile Builders, we offer dental sealants that will protect these vulnerable areas by sealing out food and plaque. The sealant bonds into the nooks and crannies and forms a protective layer over the enamel of the teeth.

Adults may be eligible for this kind of treatment if they have no decay or fillings, but children and teenagers are the main candidates for a dental sealant. They have the highest likelihood of getting decay in the depressions and grooves of their molars and premolars.

Dental sealants are painted onto the teeth, and it is painless. A CDC report lists the benefit of dental sealants to be approximately 80% at two years and will continue to protect at a rate of 50% up to 4 years.

Dental Sealants can help:

  • Prevent cavities and decay.

  • Keep plaque, acids, and food from sitting in nooks and crannies of the molars and premolars

  • Save money, time, and the discomfort of having a cavity filled.
