Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a preventive treatment offered at Harmony Dental of Sherman Oaks to protect your teeth from decay and cavities. Sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of your molars and premolars, which are particularly susceptible to decay due to their deep grooves and pits.

The sealant material forms a protective barrier, preventing bacteria, plaque, and food particles from accumulating in the crevices of your teeth. This helps to minimize the risk of cavities and the need for more extensive dental treatments in the future.

Dental Sealants

A Thorough Process

The application of dental sealants is a quick and painless process. The teeth are thoroughly cleaned, dried, and the sealant material is carefully painted onto the targeted surfaces. A special curing light may be used to harden the sealant and ensure its longevity.

Sealants are most commonly recommended for children and teenagers as soon as their permanent molars erupt. However, adults who are prone to cavities or have deep grooves in their teeth can also benefit from this preventive treatment.

At Harmony Dental of Sherman Oaks, we prioritize preventive care to maintain optimal oral health for our patients. Dental sealants are just one of the many tools we use to prevent tooth decay and preserve your natural smile.
