Dental Sealants

At Loomis Road, we prioritize your dental health with our advanced dental sealant services. Dental sealants act as a powerful shield against cavities, particularly for younger patients. Our experienced dental professionals apply these protective coatings to the chewing surfaces of your teeth, ensuring long-lasting protection and peace of mind. Dental sealants are a thin, protective coating placed onto the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. These specific areas are at a higher risk of decay because of their deep grooves and crevices, which can be challenging to clean effectively with just a toothbrush. Our highly proficient dentists utilize safe and painless techniques to administer dental sealants, establishing a barrier that isolates these vulnerable zones from harmful bacteria and food particles. When you opt for Loomis Road Dental for your dental sealant needs, you’re not only investing in preventing potential dental issues but also securing a brighter, healthier smile for years to come. Don’t procrastinate until cavities emerge; contact us today to set up an appointment and enjoy the benefits of our exceptional dental sealant services.

Dental Sealants

What sealant aims to achieve

Dentists use sealants as a protective measure against disease-causing bacteria that can harm your teeth. The deep grooves in your molars aid in breaking down food during chewing. Over time, the accumulation of food and bacteria in these grooves can lead to the development of cavities or tooth decay. Sealants are applied to these areas to block bacteria from reaching them. The primary objective of dental sealants is to provide a crucial shield against tooth decay and cavities, especially on the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. These surfaces are susceptible to food particles and bacteria, making sealants a vital tool in preventive dentistry.

What are the benefits of dental sealants?

  • Protection against decay: Dental sealants provide a protective barrier against bacteria and food particles that can cause decay.
  • Easy application: The application of dental sealants is quick, painless, and does not require any drilling or removal of tooth structure.
  • Cost-effective: Dental sealants are a cost-effective way to prevent tooth decay, as they can last for several years and are less expensive than fillings or other restorative procedures.
  • Improved oral health: By protecting teeth from decay, dental sealants can improve overall oral health and prevent the need for more extensive dental treatments in the future.
