Dental sealants are thin coatings that are applied to healthy tooth surfaces to prevent decay and cavities from occurring. Dental sealants in Sacramento, California, are high-quality resins, and last for several years while providing exceptional protection for your teeth. We invite you to call Gateway Oaks Dental at 916-649-0249 to learn more about the benefits of dental sealants and to make your appointment with Dr. Hoang Truong.
Your back teeth have depressions and grooves in them that can make it difficult to clean the bacteria and food particles that build up. If you fail to clean these teeth properly, it can lead to plaque and tartar buildup. Tooth sealants are used to protect these vulnerable areas of your teeth by sealing the grooves and depressions. Dental sealants are often recommended for children as soon as their permanent molars have erupted. Sealants provide protection for your teeth and prevent the need for expensive cavity treatments.
When getting a dental sealant, our gentle dentists will place the sealant on your teeth in an entirely pain-free procedure. There is no drilling and minimal irritation when adjusting to the sealants. After the sealants are applied, normal eating and teeth cleaning habits can be resumed.
If you have any questions about dental sealants, or if you would like to know if dental sealants are right for you or your child, please contact our office today to talk with our knowledgeable dental team. We look forward to helping maintain your beautiful smiles!
