New Port Richey Sealants
Protect Sensitive Teeth the Right Way
Your back teeth can be particularly vulnerable to decay from a combination of intense chewing and less focused brushing. At A Family Dentist in New Port Richey, we can help protect your back teeth from decay using dental sealants. These sealants often significantly reduce the occurrence of cavities for our patients. When properly applied by our skilled dentist, sealants can dramatically improve the health of your teeth and assist in the overall proactive care of your mouth.
Dental sealants are a plastic material that our dentist paints onto your teeth as a liquid. The sealant dries hard to create a protective coating for your teeth. The entire procedure is non-invasive and painless; it involves no drilling, and you should experience no discomfort during application. We focus on areas toward the back of your mouth where food debris commonly collects and leads to deterioration. Sealing these vulnerable areas can have a huge effect on your oral health.
Call (727) 645-0766 to discuss dental sealants with our friendly team.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Sealants?
We recommend dental sealants for patients across a broad age range. Children, adults with perceptible deep grooves in molars, and adults who have had problems with tooth decay in the past are all appropriate candidates. Shielding your tooth from future decay can make chewing, smiling, and talking worry-free again.
What to expect from a dental sealant application:
- The targeted tooth will be cleaned prior to the procedure
- Cotton is situated around the tooth to keep it as dry as possible during application
- A solution is applied to the tooth to make the surface more receptive to the sealant
- The sealant is painted on and hardens rapidly
