Our team at Turlock Dental Care is thrilled to provide dental sealants to help you protect your back molars from harmful substances. Our teeth are important tools in having a fully-functional oral cavity, and in order to preserve the health of your teeth, we are proud to provide these products for your benefit.
A dental sealant is a thin, plastic product that is painted onto the surfaces of your teeth to protect them. This product is beneficial for anyone who has the desire to shield their teeth from potential dental issues. The process involved in placing a dental sealant is easy, painless and efficient. It first begins with our team thoroughly cleaning the tooth that is receiving the sealant. When the tooth is clean and dry, Dr. Robert A. McCulla or Dr. Zachary McComb will place an acid solution onto the surface, which will help the material bond to the tooth’s structure. The tooth will again be rinsed and dried. When the tooth is ready, your dentist will paint the sealant onto the tooth and will harden it with a special dental light. This process will only take a few minutes at the dental office and can ensure years of protection.
Dental sealants can last up to 10 years and are an easy and efficient way of having strong and dependable oral health. If you are interested in utilizing a dental sealant in Turlock, California, please feel free to give us a call at 209-667-7889 and set up an appointment with our dentists!
