Dental sealants are a highly effective preventive treatment recommended by our dentists to safeguard teeth against decay and cavities. These protective coatings are typically made of a clear or tooth-colored resin material and are skillfully applied by Dr. Olagoke Masha and Dr. Jennifer Ogbuehi to block decay-causing bacteria and food debris from affecting your teeth and smile.

One of the key advantages of dental sealants is their ability to create a smooth, protective layer over the natural pits and grooves of the tooth’s chewing surface. This layer acts as a barrier, preventing the infiltration of harmful substances that can erode tooth enamel and cause cavities. Moreover, this smooth surface makes it easier to maintain oral hygiene through regular brushing, ensuring that your teeth remain healthy and free from decay.

Dental sealants are commonly recommended for children, with a focus on applying them to their permanent molars as soon as they emerge, typically between the ages of 6 and 12 years. However, these protective coatings are not limited to children alone. Adult patients who have teeth that are prone to decay or have a history of dental issues can also benefit from the application of dental sealants.

The process of applying dental sealants is quick, comfortable and painless. Our skilled dentists and team can provide this valuable protection to your teeth in a single visit to True Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. We may even be able to apply your sealants during your regular cleanings and exams!
