Dental Sealants in

Dental sealants help prevent the back teeth from trapping bacteria and developing decay. We provide sealants to our child and adult patients alike.

Dental Sealants in Lutz

The molars and premolars are more susceptible to trapping bacteria and developing decay than the other teeth. This is due to the anatomical structure of the occlusal (biting) surfaces, where food is most often chewed on. The deep grooves and fissures of the occlusal surface can make it hard for the bristles on your toothbrush to clean out trapped food and bacteria. This is why decay can develop even with good oral hygiene habits.

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are painted onto the chewing surfaces to make them smoother and less susceptible to trapping bacteria. These plastic coatings that smooth out the rough chewing surfaces of the molars and premolars are known for reducing the risk of cavities on permanent molars by 80 percent!

The procedure only takes one appointment, and we will also make sure to clean out any existing bacteria or decay to prevent it from getting trapped underneath the dental sealant. Once your tooth is cleaned and dried, the dental sealant will be painted on, bonded and dried. After we check your bite, you will be able to return to your normal diet and routine that very same day.

Hands down, the best dental office I’ve ever been to. Everyone is happy and helpful. No dental shaming. Excellent knowledge and communication-they took pictures of my teeth and showed me my x-rays so I could see and understand everything that was going on. This is an example of how all healthcare should be.
