Dental Sealants in
Plantation

At Plantation Dental Care, we offer dental sealants to protect the molars and premolars. These plastic coatings can be used to smooth the chewing surfaces of the back teeth and to create a barrier that prevents them from trapping bacteria and developing decay.

Dental Sealants in Plantation

The chewing surface of the molars and premolars, also known as the occlusal surface, is comprised of grooves and fissures that can sometimes be deep and narrow. These can be difficult areas to clean with just the bristles of your toothbrush. If bacteria builds up there, decay may develop over time.

To protect the back teeth, we can apply a dental sealant over the occlusal surfaces of molars and premolars. A dental sealant is a thin coating of liquid plastic that bonds to the surface and makes a smoother surface, drastically reducing the chances of trapping bacteria and developing decay. The sealants also smooth out the surface making teeth easier to clean.

Our dental sealants are applied by first eliminating any existing bacteria or decay to ensure that it doesn’t get trapped under the dental sealant. We will then apply an acidic solution to roughen the teeth a bit which will help the sealant to bond. Finally, we paint the dental sealant over the chewing surfaces of the back teeth and allow it to dry. Once the sealant is applied, no changes will need to be made to diet or routine. The process is fast and painless. While sealants are most often used for children who are most prone to decay, they are also effective for adults who are at risk.

I had broken my tooth and this was the nearest place to where I live that’s open on Friday. They are so nice and very helpful here. I love this place and I’m glad google pointed me their way.

As much as I hate any kind of dental work, the people at Plantation Dental Care are so gentle and sweet and wonderful! Thank you PDC! I am so happy that my mom introduced me to you all and can't wait to get my children and husband in as your patients as well! The office is clean and light and bright with such a happy atmosphere. There equipment is pretty high tech too! I've been seeing the same dentist for over 30 years but they are just too far for me to travel. I was so nervous to try someplace new but am so happy I finally did!
