Dental Sealants in Montville, NJ
Dental sealants are quick and easy tooth-colored plastic coated resin coatings designed to fill little grooves in your teeth to prohibit bacteria buildup. The process is quite simple.
Your dentist will clean your teeth, then apply a solution that will allow the sealant to stick tightly to the tooth.
The first dental sealant to be placed is usually on the fissure of the first permanent molar tooth, once the chewing surface of the tooth has erupted completely beyond the gum.
After a consultation with Dr. Ferrari and determining that dental sealants are right for you, we will then apply the dental sealant in a liquid form. The sealant hardens in just about a minute, and that’s it! Your teeth are now safeguarded with an extra layer of protection against decay and cavities.
Best of all, recent studies performed by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have shown that dental sealants can reduce decay and protect against 80% of cavities for 2 years, and provide 50% continued protection against cavities for up to 4 years.
If you or someone you love is interested in dental sealants, we encourage you to arrange a free consultation with Dr. Ferrari so he can explain your options and whether dental sealants may be right for you.
