Sealants 2018-07-26T13:24:28+00:00

Sealants

Sealants are thin plastic coatings used to protect your child’s back teeth. These teeth, which act as the main chewing surfaces, can easily trap bacteria and food particles that cause decay. Your back teeth can also be hard to clean through regular brushing and flossing. Dental sealants help promote good oral hygiene while acting as a protective shield. They are ideal for preventing decay on your child’s newly grown permanent teeth or stopping decay from damaging primary teeth. Sealants are one of our easiest treatments.

Our skilled dentist and dental team at Great Lakes Dentistry can apply dental sealants in a matter of minutes. One of our dentists will clean the tooth and use a gentle bonding liquid if necessary to create a texture to the tooth’s surface. This promotes a stronger bond. The sealant is then painted onto the surface of the tooth and allowed to harden. We offer dental sealants in Royal Oak, Michigan, as part of our effort to protect your child’s smile and promote good oral hygiene for a lifetime. While mostly used for children, some teenagers and adults may also qualify for sealants.

If you would like to learn more, we encourage you to contact us for more information or schedule an appointment with one of our talented dentists today.
