To ensure the safety of our patients and team members, and in compliance with federal and state recommendations, we are postponing all non-essential dental procedures due to the coronavirus outbreak. We will continue to be available for patients who need emergency care as determined by our doctors. If you are experiencing dental pain or infection, or otherwise believe you require emergency dental care, please contact us. Your health, and the health of our team members, remains our top priority. Please note that hours may vary at some practices. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
Sealants are placed on the chewing surface of permanent back teeth to help protect them from decay.
Thorough brushing and flossing helps remove food and plaque from teeth, but they can't reach all the way into depressions and grooves. While fluoride helps prevent decay and helps protect the surfaces of teeth, dental sealants add extra protection for grooved and pitted areas.
Placing dental sealants is doesn't require drilling or numbing medications.
