Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a preventive dental treatment aimed at protecting the teeth from decay, particularly in the grooves and pits of the molars and premolars. Our practice focuses on promoting optimal oral health and helping patients maintain healthy smiles for life through dental sealants in Arvada, Colorado.

Understanding Dental Sealants
Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to create a protective barrier against plaque and bacteria. Some key aspects of dental sealants include:

  • Preventing Decay: Sealants seal off the deep grooves and pits of the teeth, making it difficult for food particles and bacteria to accumulate and cause decay.
  • Long-lasting Protection: With proper care, dental sealants can provide protection against cavities for several years.
  • Painless Procedure: Applying sealants is a quick and painless procedure that can be completed during a routine dental visit.

Benefits of Dental Sealants
Choosing dental sealants at Table Mountain Dental offers several important benefits:

  • Reduced Risk of Cavities: Sealants help prevent cavities by providing a protective barrier against decay-causing bacteria.
  • Cost-effective: Sealants are a cost-effective preventive measure that can save you money on dental treatments in the long run.
  • Suitable for All Ages: Sealants are particularly beneficial for children and teenagers, as they are more susceptible to cavities due to their dietary habits and oral hygiene practices.

The Sealant Process

  • Cleaning: The teeth are cleaned and dried thoroughly before the sealant is applied.
  • Application: The sealant material is carefully painted onto the chewing surfaces of the teeth and hardened with a special curing light.
  • Evaluation: Dr. Craig Cardon will check the sealants during routine dental visits and reapply them as needed to maintain effectiveness.
