Indentations on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth typically hold onto more food particles and plaque, meaning they are more vulnerable to decay. Dental sealants are an important aspect of preventive dentistry because they help protect the molars from damage due to decay. These thin defensive barriers are composed of an invisible or white liquid that is applied to the tops of molar or premolar teeth. When they're bonded, dental sealants help protect the enamel and provide a smoother exterior that is easier to brush. Dental sealants done at Concerned Dental Care not only ward off cavities but might decrease your need for tooth-colored fillings or other restorative treatments down the road. Speak with someone from our dental team at your biannual dental appointments at our New York City, NY office or one of our surrounding area practices to learn if you or your child may benefit from dental sealants.

Children aged 6 – 12 are generally more likely to develop decay on the chewing surfaces of their permanent molars, meaning they are great candidates to receive dental sealants. In addition, patients aged 12 and up could also consider getting dental sealants, such as individuals who have trouble keeping up with the best oral hygiene practices or who are prone to cavities. At Concerned Dental Care, the application of dental sealants is a quick, routine treatment that typically requires no sedation. Set up a visit, and someone on our dental team can speak with you or your child to learn if you could qualify for this easy and helpful option.

I had a great cleaning with my hygienist Ms.Facey. My issue is with the reception. When I arrived it was 10 minutes before my appointment which was 11am. I sat there, was not given any paperwork and they did not inform my hygienist that I was there. She was too busy laughing and chatting at the front. When I saw my hygienist was 22 minutes after 11am. I had to go up to the reception area and ask her if she informed Ms. Facey that I was there. She thought I didn’t make it. When it was time for me to see Dr. Schwartz, his assistant asked if I was given paperwork to fill out. I was not. The reception has to do better.

As a first step, we will need to evaluate the teeth to determine if dental sealants could be the ideal service for you or your family. To prepare the teeth for sealants, a professional on our team will polish the enamel to get rid of any buildup, food particles, and germs from the tops of the teeth. The enamel is then dried, and a small layer of sealant material will be painted precisely into the crevices via a tiny brush. An advanced curing light is then placed over the tooth, which will harden the sealant coating in approximately 10 – 20 seconds. After every sealant is in position, our staff will check your bite for alignment and give you instructions about how to properly care for your dental sealants.

When your sealant appointment has finished, you or your child will be able to resume your daily activities. Over the subsequent days, it will be critical to avoid sticky or hard foods to keep the dental sealants intact as they harden into your teeth. We also suggest maintaining a proper dental hygiene routine, like flossing and brushing the teeth at least twice each day. If tended to properly, dental sealants can stay in good shape for a number of years. Our team will evaluate your mouth during annual dental assessments and let you know when the sealants should be redone.
