Enhancing Dental Protection with Sealants at Alta Vista Dental Care

At Alta Vista Dental Care, we understand that thorough brushing sometimes isn’t enough, particularly for those hard-to-reach areas in your mouth. That’s why we offer dental sealants – a simple yet effective solution to protect your teeth against decay and prevent cavities, especially for our patients in Auburn and surrounding areas.

Why Choose Dental Sealants?

A Barrier Against Decay: Dental sealants are made of a plastic resin that easily bonds into the grooves and dips of your tooth surface, forming a protective layer. Once applied, these sealants smooth out the rough, hard-to-clean areas, significantly reducing the likelihood of plaque buildup. The result is a tooth surface that’s not only easier to clean but also more resistant to decay.

Preventive Care for Every Age

While sealants are commonly applied to children's teeth after their permanent teeth have erupted, they are just as beneficial for adults. Typically, we focus on sealing permanent teeth to offer long-term protection against tooth decay. However, every patient at Alta Vista Dental Care receives a personalized recommendation based on their specific dental needs.

Lasting Protection with Simple Maintenance

Sealants can last from three to five years, and it's not unusual for them to remain intact well into adulthood. The longevity of a sealant is a testament to its durability, but regular dental check-ups are crucial. If a sealant does become damaged or wears off, it's important to have it reapplied to maintain its protective benefits. At Alta Vista Dental Care, we ensure that your sealants are always in optimal condition.

A Quick Step to Long-Term Oral Health

Applying sealants is a quick, painless process and is an excellent investment in your oral health. During your visit to Alta Vista Dental Care, the sealant is painted onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds directly and hardens. This process requires no drilling or alteration to the tooth structure, making it an ideal preventive measure for patients of all ages.

At Alta Vista Dental Care, incorporating dental sealants into your oral hygiene routine is part of our commitment to providing comprehensive dental care. Our goal is to equip each patient with the best tools and treatments to maintain optimal dental health. Sealants are just one of the many ways we help protect and preserve your natural smile.
