Introduction to the Service

At Salmon Creek Complete Dentistry, we believe in proactive oral health care for patients of all ages. Dental sealants are a preventive treatment that helps protect your teeth from decay and cavities. Our commitment to patient care extends to providing expert sealant services that keep your smile healthy and vibrant.

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of your molars and premolars. These areas are prone to trapping food particles and are often difficult to clean thoroughly. Sealants create a barrier that helps prevent the formation of cavities by keeping bacteria and debris out of the grooves and pits of your teeth.
You may consider dental sealants if you:

  • Want to protect your child’s developing permanent teeth
  • Have deep grooves or pits in your molars and premolars
  • Seek a preventive measure against cavities
  • Wish to maintain optimal oral health and avoid dental fillings
Choosing dental sealants offers several important benefits:

  • Effective protection against tooth decay
  • Preventive measure that reduces the risk of cavities
  • Quick and painless application process
  • Durable and long-lasting results
  • Cost-effective and minimally invasive
During a dental sealant procedure at Salmon Creek Complete Dentistry:

  • Our skilled dental professional will clean and prepare the tooth’s surface.
  • The sealant material, typically a tooth-colored resin, is applied to the grooves and pits of the tooth.
  • A special light is used to harden and bond the sealant to the tooth’s surface.
  • The sealant creates a smooth and protective barrier that effectively seals off the vulnerable areas of the tooth.

Dental sealants are a preventive measure that complements regular oral hygiene routines. Maintaining good brushing and flossing habits, along with regular dental check-ups, will ensure the continued effectiveness of your sealants.
