One of the ways we fight against tooth decay at the Dental Center is by using a sealant. Sealants are thin coatings painted onto your back teeth and are made of plastic resin that is malleable before it hardens. Sealants are placed on the back teeth, also known as your chewing surfaces, because those teeth are especially susceptible to decay and damage. Your chewing surfaces are hard to clean and have deep ridges and grooves that can easily trap bacteria and food particles. Sealants are designed to make your teeth smooth and easy to clean while acting as a protective barrier against decay.

Generally, Dr. Ball and Dr. Broadbent suggest sealants for our younger patients who have not experienced major decay or whose permanent teeth have just grown in. However, there are some circumstances where adults can benefit from sealants. This is especially true if you have no dental restorations on your back teeth. Sealants can be applied in just a couple of minutes per tooth and can help protect your smile. If you are interested in finding out whether you qualify for dental sealants in Orem, Utah, please give our dentists a call. We would love to help you schedule a time to come and see us.
