How do dental sealants protect teeth?
Because fluoride is effective in preventing decay from forming on the smooth surfaces of teeth, and dental sealants protect the grooves of teeth, these treatments are best used in conjunction.
Dental sealants are particularly effective for protecting children's teeth. The first permanent molars emerge when a child is about 6. A dental sealant treatment performed shortly after these first permanent teeth emerge protects the teeth from developing cavities. Another good time for applying sealants occurs when a child is about 12, when the second permanent molars emerge.
We may also recommend sealants for adults who are at a particularly high risk of tooth decay.

Testimonials


Dr. Krempa did an excellent job! I usually dread going to the dentist, but he was very gentle and caring. He asked me if I was comfortable and took the time with me in understanding my treatment options. His use of technology was really nice because it allowed me to view my teeth on a big screen TV. I was amazed how wonderful my teeth felt after my visit. I will definitely go back!  -Google User on June 18, 2013
