Dr. Roger Anderson provides dental sealants to block out harmful plaque and debris so that your teeth can remain healthy and strong and you can continue to enjoy a healthy and functional smile. Dental sealants are most frequently provided for children, but may also be recommended for adults with deep grooves in the chewing surfaces of their teeth or who are at greater risk of developing cavities.
Dental sealants are a type of preventive treatment. Sealants are made of clear or tooth-colored resin material, and are painted onto the chewing surfaces of the tooth to form a smooth surface coating that blocks out harmful bacteria and food debris. This smooth surface also makes it easier for you to brush and floss effectively and keep your teeth clean.
Sealants can be provided in just a few minutes as part of your regular appointments. The application process is very comfortable, and will not require any additional preparation beforehand. Sealants are usually applied to the molars and are provided for children as soon as their permanent molars come in (between the ages of 6 and 12 years).
