How Do Dental Sealants Work?

Baby teeth and permanent teeth have deep pits and grooves on the chewing surface of the tooth. These areas are difficult to keep clean, even with good brushing habits. Dental sealants work by filling in or “sealing” the deep pits and grooves on the chewing surfaces of the teeth. Sealants prevent plaque and bacteria from accumulating in those deep grooves and pits, thus reducing your child’s risk of developing dental decay. Sealants are tooth colored plastic material. The application is fast and comfortable and can effectively protect teeth for years to come.

Sedation dentistry is not just for anxiety.

All of your dental work can be done in a single visit in a safe & fun environment.

This type of dentistry is great for those who have anxiety, a low pain threshold, can’t sit still in a dentist’s chair, someone with very sensitive teeth, those with a strong gag reflex or anyone needing an extensive amount of dental work. Patients with special needs due to physical, medical, developmental or cognitive issues also need and deserve special consideration.
