Dental Sealants

A Dental sealant is a thin, transparent plastic coating that is painted on the chewing surface of the permanent back teeth. They are intended to prevent harmful organisms from damaging and accessing the back teeth by serving as a protective shield for the tooth enamel. They also smooth out the surfaces of molars that have deep grooves and fissures for easier cleaning and maintenance. Along with regular hygiene, a dental sealant is a great way to protect your teeth from tooth decay. They also blend in with the color of your natural tooth, so aesthetics are not compromised for this procedure. While commonly used on children, patients of all ages can benefit from Dental Sealants.

Applying Dental Sealants

The process of applying dental sealants only takes a few minutes per tooth and can often be done during a regular checkup. The procedure starts by thoroughly cleaning and drying the tooth that is designated for sealing. Next, a solution is used to roughen the surface of the tooth so that the sealants can efficiently stick. The acrylic sealants are carefully painted on the deep grooves and fissures of the tooth and are then fully dried.

Our Happy Patients

"I am always greeted promptly in a friendly manner as I enter the office. The staff person who will provide my dental services never keeps me waiting. My personal comfort is the first order of business in the dental chair. An explanation of what is being done and why is readily available. And the doctor of dentistry is readily available and willing to describe plans of treatment as necessary. And the mantra accompanying procedures is "We don't want you to experience any pain or discomfort."

"They are awesome...from the receptionist all the way to Dr. Casey!"

"I had Dr. Casey fix a chipped tooth of mine a few months ago. He was very personable and easy to talk with. He did a great job on my tooth and the cost was very reasonable. I would definitely refer people over to him again and I will work with him in the future."
