Dental Sealants at Auburn Dental Center

A preventive approach to safeguard your teeth against decay and cavities.

What are dental sealants?

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). They act as a barrier, preventing food particles and bacteria from settling in the deep grooves of these teeth.

Why should you consider dental sealants?

Sealants provide an added layer of protection against tooth decay. They are especially beneficial for the back teeth, which are more susceptible to cavities due to their intricate grooves and harder accessibility during brushing. Learn more about our preventive dental care methods.

Who can benefit from dental sealants?

While often recommended for children and teenagers who have newly erupted permanent teeth, adults without fillings or tooth decay can also benefit from dental sealants. They are an effective preventive measure for patients of all ages. Discover more about our pediatric dental services.

How are dental sealants applied?

The application process is quick and painless. The tooth is cleaned, conditioned, and dried. The sealant is then painted onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds directly to the tooth and hardens. The procedure can be completed in a single visit. Read more about our comprehensive dental procedures.

How long do dental sealants last?

With proper care, dental sealants can last for several years. During your regular dental check-ups, your dentist will check the condition of the sealants and recommend re-application if necessary.
