Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach.
Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
Children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
The health of our patients is important to us. We understand the concerns that parents may have in light of recent research studies suggesting that early life exposure to Bisphenol A, or BPA, may be linked to an increased risk for the development of behavior problems in children. That is why at Shukhman Dental we use a sealant manufactured by a company whose supplier has assured them that there isn’t even a measurable trace of BPA impurity in their supplied materials and that has tested its materials with a quality outside laboratory with the same results.
We use BPA-free sealants.
