Dental sealants serve as a protective shield for your teeth, particularly the molars and premolars, which are prone to decay due to their uneven surfaces and deep grooves. These grooves, known as fissures, can easily trap food particles and bacteria, leading to the formation of cavities.

Our team at Hammond Dental Care believes in the power of prevention and dental sealants are a prime example of our commitment to your oral health. Applied as a thin, plastic coating to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth, sealants act as a barrier, preventing bacteria and food particles from settling into the grooves and causing decay.

One of the greatest advantages of dental sealants is their simplicity and effectiveness. First, our skilled dentists and team will thoroughly clean and prepare the teeth. Then, the sealant material is carefully applied and hardened with a special curing light. Within minutes, your teeth are fortified with an invisible shield, ready to withstand the rigors of daily chewing and brushing.

Our dentists and team often recommend dental sealants for children and teenagers, as their developing teeth are particularly susceptible to decay. However, adults can also benefit from this preventive treatment, especially if they have deep grooves or a history of cavities.

We strive to empower you with the knowledge and tools necessary to achieve and maintain optimal oral health.
