Prevent Tooth Decay with Our Sealants for Molars & More

The main goal of our general dentistry at Carolina Dental Arts is to provide preventive dental care for patients of all ages. That’s why we offer long-lasting, high-quality sealants in Glenwood South, Raleigh, NC, Goldsboro, and all our locations throughout North Carolina. Also, to learn more about if a tooth sealant would improve your dental health, contact your nearest dentist’s location.

What is a sealant?

A sealant is a thin, plastic coating this is applied to the chewing surface of molars, premolars, and any deep grooves in your teeth. These deep grooves are hard to clean and are very susceptible to decay. Also, as more than 75% of tooth decay begins in these deep grooves, our sealant help prevent future decay and protect your teeth by sealing the grooves and creating a smooth surface that is easy to clean.

Why should NC patients get sealants?

Patients often need dental sealants due to different reasons concerning their age or the state of their teeth:

  • If you are a child or a teenager, you are prone to cavities as soon as your six-year molars appear. (Your first permanent back teeth). Sealants help prevent these cavities.
  • For adults, tooth surfaces without decay can still have deep grooves or depressions that can be solved with a sealant.
  • Baby teeth can still occasionally need a sealant if the teeth have deep grooves or depressions. Also, if the child is prone to cavities.

What is our sealant application process?

 

When you visit Carolina Dental Arts for a sealant, one of our experienced NC dentists or dental hygienists will complete the procedure — each tooth only takes about two minutes to seal. We thoroughly clean the teeth that will be sealed and surround them with cotton to keep the area dry. A special solution is applied to the enamel surface. This helps the adhesive bond to the tooth, then the teeth are rinsed and dried. Also, the sealant material is carefully painted on the enamel surface and covers the deep grooves and depressions. Depending on the type of sealant, the material will harden automatically or with a curing light. No shots or drilling are required for this dental procedure.

Ashley who was my hygienist today did such a wonderful job on my teeth. I have gone in for cleanings before with other dentists in the area of Goldsboro and always come out with yellow teeth still.. I did not have any any kind of whitening done she just cleaned my teeth and I felt so good afterward .
