Sealants in Gilbert, Arizona

What is a sealant?

A sealant is a thin, plastic coating applied to the chewing surface of molars, premolars and any deep grooves (called pits and fissures) of teeth. More than 75% of dental decay begins in these deep grooves. Teeth with these conditions are hard to clean and are very susceptible to decay. A sealant protects the tooth by sealing deep grooves, creating a smooth, easy to clean surface.

Sealants can protect teeth from decay for many years but need to be checked for wear and chipping at regular dental visits.

Reasons for sealants:

  • Children and teenagers – As soon as the six-year molars (the first permanent back teeth) appear or any time throughout the cavity-prone years of 6-16.
  • Adults – Tooth surfaces without decay that have deep grooves or depressions.
  • Baby teeth – Occasionally done if teeth have deep grooves or depressions and the child is cavity prone.

What do sealants involve?

Sealants are easily applied by your dentist or dental hygienist and the process takes only a couple of minutes per tooth.

The teeth to be sealed are thoroughly cleaned and then surrounded with cotton to keep the area dry. A special solution is applied to the enamel surface to help the sealant bond to the teeth. The teeth are then rinsed and dried. Sealant material is carefully painted onto the enamel surface to cover the deep grooves or depressions. Depending on the type of sealant used, the material will either harden automatically or with a special curing light.

Proper home care, a balanced diet, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new sealants.

I have never been a fan of dentists, and neither have my kiddos! BUT.... this ENTIRE office staff is incredibly amazing! From Pam- to Dr Masters.... I’d give 10stars if I could. My sweet daughter has very weak bones and teeth , and they have worked with us far beyond the scope they’ve had to. We will FOREVER be grateful and FOREVER be patients HERE! ❤️❤️

This is the second time I have been to Greenfield family dentistry. Doctor Masters make your treatment smooth and puts the stress of the cost in the rear view mirror. Lindsay and Pam the office manager’s in the front of the dental office is where it all starts. It’s like you walk into your home with great smiles and it’s your family. If you need work done hands down go here 100% Greenfield family dentistry.
