At Prime Time Dentistry, we prioritize your oral health and offer sealant applications to safeguard your teeth against decay and cavities. Our highly effective sealants create a protective barrier on the chewing surfaces of your molars and premolars, which are particularly susceptible to cavities due to their anatomized grooves. Whether you are a child in the cavity-prone years of ages 6 to 14 or an adult seeking to preserve your healthy teeth, sealants can be beneficial in preventing tooth decay.
The process of applying sealants is simple and efficient. Our team will thoroughly clean your teeth before drying them to ensure optimal bonding. A liquid solution will then be carefully applied to the chewing surfaces, followed by the use of a special curing light to cure the solution, creating a durable sealant that shields your enamel from plaque and acids.
Sealants can provide lasting protection for several years, but it is important to remember that they are not a replacement for regular oral hygiene practices. While sealants safeguard the chewing surfaces, maintaining proper brushing habits and daily flossing are crucial for overall oral health. Regular visits to our office for professional dental cleanings are also essential to ensure the longevity of your sealants.
