Dental Sealants in

Dental sealants are an acrylic, plastic coating that is applied to the chewing surface of the molars. This special coating establishes an effective barrier to protect the teeth from harmful bacteria and plaque and makes them easier to clean.

Since the back teeth are particularly vulnerable to deterioration and decay, sealants can be extremely helpful for helping the teeth remain healthy and strong. They are a great option for children and for adults who are at a high risk of dental decay.

The process for applying sealants is fast, painless and can usually be completed during a regular dental visit. The first step is to thoroughly clean any tooth that is going to be sealed. It is critical that no unwanted material remains and becomes trapped underneath the sealants. Next, an etching gel is used to roughen the outer surfaces of the teeth.

Roughening the teeth will allow the sealant coating to bond more easily. The teeth will then be dried, and the sealants will be carefully applied by painting them on. We will allow the sealants to dry, or a special light can be used, and then check the coating to make sure that the teeth have been properly sealed and that the patient has retained a normal bite.

This was the best dental experience of my life. Dr. Troy Kemahli was very meticulous, knowledgeable, and knows how to give almost painless shots. He has the latest hi-tech equipment and the office staff were well trained and friendly. And their prices are very reasonable 😁. I highly recommend Dr. Troy Kemahli at Wauchula Dental!
