Seal out cavities to keep your teeth healthy
Prevent cavities and protect your teeth with dental sealants! Dr. Keven R. Mills provides dental sealants to help block out the harmful bacteria, acids, food debris and plaque that lead to tooth decay and damage your smile and oral health.
Sealants are a preventive treatment, typically provided to children when their permanent molars come in. This usually occurs between the ages of six and twelve. While we usually recommend sealants for children, our dentist may also recommend this preventive service for adults who have a greater risk of tooth decay.
Sealants are made of a clear or tooth-colored material. This resin material is painted onto the chewing surfaces of the teeth. After being applied, the sealant forms a smooth, protective shield over the cracks, pits and grooves of the tooth to block out decay-causing factors and keep your tooth healthy. In addition to blocking out harmful bacteria and debris, sealants also make the tooth much smoother, which makes it easier to keep clean with regular brushing and flossing. This treatment can be completed in just a few minutes as part of your regular dental checkup.
Please remember that you will need to practice good oral hygiene at home (including flossing daily and brushing at least twice each day) in order to keep your teeth and supporting structures healthy. We encourage you to call our office and speak with a member of our team if you have questions about the best oral hygiene practices.
