While you may brush and floss regularly, food can settle in the tiny crevices of your back teeth causing plaque and tooth decay. Sealants are used to cover this area of your teeth to prevent dental issues like cavities and the need for fillings. Children and teenagers are excellent candidates for this dental treatment as they are more susceptible to cavities.

Dental sealants are a very thin clear coating that is applied to the teeth to create a barrier between the tooth and harmful bacteria. The back teeth are more prone to cavities as those are the teeth that grind up food when you chew. They are also more challenging to clean, especially for children. The process of applying the sealant is quick and painless. To begin the treatment, the dentist will first clean and dry the tooth. An acidic solution is then applied to the tooth. This solution will roughen the surface so that the sealant will adhere to the tooth. The sealant is then painted onto the tooth, making sure to cover any grooves on the tooth surface. The dentist will then use a light to help harden the sealant. You will be able to eat and drink right away after the treatment.

Sealants can last up to 10 years. During each visit, your dentist will check to make sure the sealants are not chipped or worn. While they can help protect your tooth from cavities, they are not a substitute for brushing and flossing.

If you are in the Burton, MI area and would like to schedule an appointment for sealants for you or your child, please call our office at (810) 736-9778.

I came in for my new patient appointment and had Brianna as my hygienist. First off, she was absolutely AMAZING! From the beginning she made me feel super welcome. My cleaning and X-rays went smooth she wasn’t rough like some hygienist are. The doctor was also welcoming when he came into the room. If I could give this place 10 stars I would! If you are looking for a new dentist stop looking because this is the place to be! Definitely recommend! 😊

Great place - I wouldn't go anywhere else!!! I really hate going to the dentist, so I've put things off until it's been an emergency. This place was recommended to me, and they got me right in right away when I was in immense pain. The staff is friendly and comforting, and worked with me so that I could take care of the most pressing concerns while staying within my budget. I brought my 9 year old daughter there yesterday to get her first fillings, and they were just amazing in the way they explained everything and made her feel so comfortable! I also recommended them to a friend who's dentist wanted her to wait a week for a cracked tooth. Again, they got her in that day, of course. I really can't say enough about the amazing staff and flexible hours - highly recommended!!
