Dental Sealants in Warren, MI

Give Your Smile an Added Layer of Protection

The state of your oral health is important to the longevity of your smile. Here at Warren Family Dentistry, we make sure we help every patient achieve healthy teeth and gums for years to come. One of the most important components of maintaining pristine oral health is incorporating an at-home oral hygiene routine into your daily life consisting of brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and rinsing with an antibacterial, alcohol-free mouthwash. 

While this routine is essential, there are still areas that can be hard-to-reach at home. Without regular professional dental care, bacteria will begin to build up and can lead to several health complications, including gum disease and cavities. Fortunately, Dr. Behbood provides patients with preventive treatments to help them avoid these serious health issues in the future.

Discover how our dental sealants provide an added layer of protection to your teeth and help preserve the natural beauty of your smile by reading our helpful guide below.

What Are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the teeth to give them an added layer of protection against harmful bacteria. Sealants are created from durable materials that bond to the grooves of your teeth and harden to create a tight seal, warding off plaque and tartar from sticking to the teeth. Our sealants are white or transparent to ensure an invisible appearance. 

Dental sealants work to actively prevent potentially painful and costly oral health problems, such as:

  • Cavities 
  • Tooth decay
  • Periodontal (gum) disease

The Benefits of Dental Sealants

With dental sealants, you’ll receive a variety of benefits that boosts your oral health, including:

  • Protection against plaque and food debris
  • Pain-free application process
  • Support for your at-home oral care
  • Easy to repair and care for
  • Long-lasting treatment

The Non-Invasive Dental Sealant Procedure

Dr. Behbood utilizes dental sealants because of their non-invasive procedure. The sealant process is painless and can be completed in one short appointment at our Warren dental office. 

We’ll begin the process by cleaning and drying your teeth. Once this is complete, a bonding agent will be applied that helps secure the sealants to your teeth. To finish the process, Dr. Behbood will brush the sealants onto your teeth and use a special light that allows them to properly bond and harden. When the bonding is complete, you’ll step out of our Warren office assured that your oral health has extra protection. 

Dental Sealant Candidacy

Dental sealants are an ideal treatment for children, whose teeth are typically more prone to cavities and tooth decay. While sealants are typically recommended for children, adults can benefit from this treatment as well. They can be customized for anyone and work perfectly to keep harmful bacteria from your vulnerable teeth surfaces.

There are very few health issues that can keep you from receiving dental sealants. If you’re interested in sealants, ask Dr. Behbood about this treatment at your next dental checkup. We’ll examine your mouth and treat any underlying problems during this appointment, getting you on the path to receiving dental sealants.
