Dental sealants are an effective and simple preventive treatment that can help protect your teeth from cavities and decay. At Freemon Dental in Woodstock, GA, we offer high-quality dental sealants to patients of all ages. Our experienced team is dedicated to providing personalized care and preventive treatments to keep your teeth healthy and strong.

What Are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings made from plastic or other dental materials. They are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars) to create a barrier against plaque, bacteria, and food particles. These areas are particularly prone to cavities because they have deep grooves and fissures where plaque and food can get trapped.

The Benefits of Dental Sealants at Freemon Dental

Choosing dental sealants at Freemon Dental in Woodstock, GA, offers numerous benefits:

  1. Effective Cavity Prevention: Sealants provide a physical barrier that protects enamel from acids and bacteria that cause tooth decay.
  2. Long-Lasting Protection: With proper care, dental sealants can last up to 10 years, offering long-term protection against cavities.
  3. Quick and Painless Application: The procedure for applying sealants is quick, painless, and non-invasive, making it ideal for children and adults alike.
  4. Cost-Effective Preventive Care: Sealants are a cost-effective way to prevent cavities, potentially saving you money on future dental treatments.
  5. Enhanced Oral Health: By preventing cavities, sealants contribute to better overall oral health and reduce the risk of more serious dental issues.

The Dental Sealant Process at Freemon Dental

At Freemon Dental, we ensure that the dental sealant process is straightforward and comfortable. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Initial Examination: During your visit, our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if sealants are appropriate for you. This examination may include X-rays to check for existing decay.
  2. Cleaning the Teeth: The teeth receiving sealants are thoroughly cleaned to remove any plaque or food particles.
  3. Tooth Preparation: A special gel is applied to the chewing surfaces of the teeth to roughen them slightly, which helps the sealant bond more effectively.
  4. Applying the Sealant: The sealant material is painted onto the prepared tooth surfaces. It quickly flows into the grooves and fissures of the teeth.
  5. Curing the Sealant: A special curing light is used to harden the sealant, creating a durable protective shield.
  6. Final Check: Our dentist will check the sealants to ensure they are properly applied and make any necessary adjustments.
