Sealants

Protect your teeth with effective dental sealants

If you are at risk for tooth decay, applying dental sealants to the bed of your teeth might be the ideal solution. Dental sealants apply an acrylic coating to the bed of your molars to prevent further wear and degradation of your teeth. These can lock out damage from sugary or acidic foods and protect your teeth from cavities.

We offer three different sealant colors for your tooth – traditional silver, gold, and natural white. Each sealant is long-lasting and offers years of protection for your teeth.
Sealants are quick and easy to apply, and it only takes a few minutes to install them.

What should I know about sealants?

It is important to refrain from eating hard or sticky candy or foods following the application of a sealant to your teeth. These foods may pose a risk to the sealant, however, after a few weeks, you
should be able to resume your normal diet.

Let us check up on your sealants

It is important to keep up to date with regular cleanings and exams so that the dentists at Medico M.D can check the status of your sealants and check for any wear or damage to them. If a sealant has broken or become dislodged you must make an appointment in our offices immediately. Neglecting a broken sealant leaves you at risk for further tooth decay and damage.
However, if you brush and floss regularly and stay up to date with regular cleanings, your dental sealants should last years, if not decades.

The friendly dentists at Medico M.D. are here to protect your teeth for years to come. Call us today to schedule an appointment at 1-844-9MEDICO!
