Dental Sealants in Orem, UT

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.

Dr Ball was fantastic. He is very professional and explains before hand what should/will happen. His work is excellent and has a great since of humor. He cares about his patients outcomes and is very supportive during the visit. Angie, his assistant is also great and they work well together as a team. I would not hesitate to refer friends and family to Dr Ball. Great job Team!!

I saw Dr. Broadbent today and both he and the hygienist (I cannot remember your name I’m sorry, but you had a pink mask and a claw clip) were so kind and gentle. The hygienist was super nice to me and helped alleviate my anxiety about being at the dentist. They explained the whole process as they did each thing. Overall it was a great experience and I recommend them to everyone.

Best dental office we have been to - they are great and so patient with kids (And they can see me and all my kids in 45 minutes). We have been going for over 15 years. We switched to other dentists when we moved for a little bit and none of them were nearly as good. Everyone we have referred has been happy as well.

I have been going to the dental center since I was a little child. Their staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about dentistry! Douglas Ball is very funny with his jokes and makes you feel part of the family! They are very speedy at getting you in during a dental emergency! I look forward to continuing with you guys as my primary dentist!

What a wonderful experience! Barb was my hygienist today. Since I was in 6 months ago I have had a cancer diagnosis. Everyone there was so concerned and kind I felt like I was with family and friends. Their work is so thorough and Barb and Dr Ball went out of their way to show me such care and kindness! Thank you all for a great visit! Shelley
