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 made my first phone call, and Connie was so nice and informative. They did not accept my insurance, so I went to a place at Dort and Atherton that did..... Bad move on my part. A little while into my 2 hour wait/appointment I made the phone call back over to Dr Bundy office and talked to Connie again, I asked if I could come over to them and pay out of pocket instead....... She said come on over now. I up and left and no one said a word at the other place. I felt so comfortable as soon as I walked into the waitingroom. Both girls behind the counter greeted me with a hello and a smile. Jen came and lead me to the room that I would meet my New dentist! All I can say is they took great care of me when I was in desperate need. Thank you so much!

I’ve had 4/5 of the dental hygienists clean my teeth and I’ve adored all of them! They are so friendly and make me feel comfortable while I’m there. The entire staff is extremely caring! Highly recommend!
