Dental Sealants in Wayne, MI
Protect Your Teeth From Cavities
Even if you brush and floss every day, harmful bacteria can build up in corners of your mouth that are hard to clean. Without treatment, these bacteria can lead to a variety of serious health problems including cavities and gum disease.
Discover how dental sealants provide extra protection for your teeth and preserve the health of your smile.
What Are Dental Sealants?
Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the surface of your teeth. The durable material bonds with the grooves of your teeth and hardens to create a tight seal, protecting your smile from plaque and tartar.
Sealants are most commonly applied after a child’s permanent teeth have erupted, since this is the time they’re most prone to tooth decay. However, many adults can benefit from the extra protection offered by sealants as well. When you visit our dental practice in Wayne, MI, Dr. Kaur will examine your teeth and determine if sealants could improve your oral health.
Our Sealants Treatment Process
Protecting your teeth with dental sealants is a fast and non-invasive process. Dr. Kaur will begin the procedure by cleaning your teeth and drying them. Once they’re dry, she’ll apply a bonding agent that will help secure the sealants to your teeth.
Finally, Dr. Kaur will paint the sealants onto your teeth and use a special light to help them harden. Once the bonding process is complete, you can rest easy knowing that your smile has extra protection.
