Sealants

The pits and grooves of your teeth are prime areas for opportunistic decay. Even regular brushing sometimes misses some of these intricate structures on the chewing surfaces of your teeth.

Enter sealants, which are thin coatings applied to the chewing surfaces designed to prevent the intrusion of bacteria and other debris into the deep crevices on the tops of your teeth.

Sealants actually were developed about 50 years ago, but didn't become commonly used until the 1970s. Today, sealants are becoming widely popular and effective; young children are great candidates for preventative measures like sealants because in many cases, decay has not set in. Even on teeth where decay is present, sealants have been shown to fight additional damage.

Sealants are applied by first cleaning the tooth surface. The procedure is followed by etching the tooth with an abrasive substance, which allows the sealant to better adhere. After the sealant is applied, a warm light source is directed to the site to promote faster drying. Sealants usually need re-application every five to 10 years.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "I visited the office to have my periodontal work done. I visit every 3 months for this. Debbie does a wonderful job cleaning my teeth and also advises me regularly what I am doing right and what may need more attention. Dr. Mazzella always stops in to take a look at my teeth and just chat for a minute or two. I am very comfortable in this office as everyone, including staff, is very friendly but also very professional. Dr. Mazzella is the best dentist I have been to in a very long time - I have been going to his office for almost 6 years and it has been a wonderful experience. I always recommend him if anyone asks about my dentist."

    Gayle G
  • "I came into the office early on a Monday morning without an appointment with a tooth emergency. I thought the best I could get not bein in their schedule was either wait a long time to get seen between other patients or an antibiotic prescription and a time to come back later in the week. Instead, I was seen within 10 minutes and was done in a little over an hour. Dr Mazzella is the best and his team is the greatest in compassion and friendliness."
