Sealants in

Sealants are a thin, transparent layer of plastic which can be applied to the grooves and depressions in the chewing teeth to prevent cavities. They are most often applied to the permanent teeth of children but can be used for adults as well.

Dental Sealants in Sacramento

The chewing surfaces of our molars and premolars are perfect spots for cavity-causing bacteria to grow. This is due to the presence of pits and fissures where bacteria and food particles can stick. The bristles of a toothbrush are not fine enough to clean these areas, and this can lead to decay and cavities.

The placement of sealants can decrease the chances of tooth decay by nearly seventy percent, preventing the need for extensive restorations and treatments later in life, and allowing you to protect the health of your teeth. Sealants are highly durable and can protect your teeth for many years.

The application of dental sealants on the teeth is a quick and painless procedure which involves cleaning the teeth and applying a thin coat of the liquid sealant to them. The application only takes about two minutes per tooth, and once the sealant has dried, we check if your biting surfaces are properly sealed, and then you are done.

It is important to brush twice a day, floss once daily, and take care of your dental hygiene after the application of dental sealants. We also recommend visiting our practice for regular dental checkups and professional cleanings during which we will check the condition of your sealants and assess whether re-application is needed.

Everyone was very kind and helpful in this office. Everything went very smoothly and I am grateful to have found this dentist. The dentist really cared about me and is going to refer me to a TMJ specialist which I need. I usually dread going to the dentist but this was painless. Thank you!!

It was a very pleasant experiance and very quick. Staff and Dr. Sabrina were really nice. They stated I didn’t need x-rays or probing this time which was great as it saved a lot of time and made for and easy visit. I appreciate not having extra things done unless absolutely necessary.
