Understanding Dental Sealants

While they won’t completely prevent cavities, plaque stays out of the deep grooves in premolars and molars after sealant liquid hardens. Sealants are ideal for adults and children of all ages.  

Dr. Samuelson and our hygiene team have the precision and knowledge to apply sealants effectively. Our focus is patient education, and we work with you to make sure sealants are the best option for your smile.

At Black Hills Area Dental, we offer the highest-quality sealant materials. Dr. Samuelson and our hygiene team can discuss if this is the right option for you.

Advantages of Dental Sealants

Dental sealants offer many excellent benefits. Dr. Samuelson and our hygienists encourage our patients to get sealants for the following reasons:

  • Increased protection against food and bacteria in the biting grooves on both primary and permanent teeth
  • Relatively fast application
  • More affordable than repairing cavities
  • Safe for all ages

Dental Sealant Application Process

Dr. Samuelson and our hygiene team makes your dental sealant application comfortable and easy. We have experience working with patients who are anxious about the process and strive to make the appointment as enjoyable as possible. We’ll take the following steps to apply sealants:

  • We perform a regular teeth cleaning.
  • We roughen the teeth for better sealant application.
  • We rinse and dry your teeth, then paint the sealant on the tooth surface.
  • Then we will use a curing light to harden sealant on premolars and permanent molars.

We’ll provide aftercare instructions and can check sealants at your next appointment. Future sealant applications will be fast, easy, and effective.
