Dental Sealants In Houston, TX

Many children develop cavities at a young age that can affect their smile and oral health. As a prophylactic treatment, Insight Dental Group provides dental sealants in Houston, TX, that can effectively form a protective barrier against caries-causing bacteria. They fill the deep crevices and fissures of molars and premolars, thus reducing the risk of dental cavities. Dr. Vikram Shad and Dr. Avni Goel believe that preventive care is better than costly dental treatments in the long run. That’s why we emphasize the importance of preventive dentistry to help you maintain a spotless smile.

    Dental Sealants

    How Do Dental Sealants Work

    The occlusal surface of your posterior teeth (premolars and molars) has deep grooves, fissures, and crevices. When you chew food, some residues accumulate in these areas, creating a perfect habitat for oral bacteria. These bacteria convert food sugars into acidic substances that can weaken the enamel, eventually leading to tooth decay.

    To prevent these consequences, we recommend getting dental sealants in Houston, TX. Early treatment with sealants can shield the susceptible areas from oral bacteria and reduce the risk of cavities. They also smoothen the occlusal surface, making it easier to brush and clean your teeth.

    Benefits of Dental Sealants

    Our Houston, TX, dentists recommend dental sealants for young children, teens, and adults to protect their teeth. The benefits of this treatment include:

    • It effectively seals the fissures and grooves on the chewing surfaces of posterior teeth.
    • It prevents the risk of dental cavities by forming a shield against harmful oral bacteria.
    • It reduces plaque accumulation in areas that are more prone to develop cavities.
    • It can smoothen the chewing surfaces of teeth and facilitate easier brushing.

    Process of Dental Sealants in Houston, TX

    Getting dental sealants is a pain-free procedure that does not require anesthesia. This procedure is typically recommended for children with newly erupted permanent teeth but is also suitable for teens and adults. Before starting the process, we will clean and dry the tooth surfaces to remove residues. 

    Next, we will apply an acidic gel to the susceptible areas. It roughens the tooth surface and enhances the bonding with the sealant material. After a few seconds, we will rinse the gel and coat the surface with tooth-colored sealants. Our dentist will use a special light to cure them in place. 

    Once they have hardened, we will ask you to bite and check if there are any high spots that may affect your occlusion. It is still important to regularly brush your teeth after this procedure to avoid cavities.
