Dental Sealants

We at Sammy BD Pak, DDS, know that you are taking good care of your teeth thorough brushing and flossing. And this daily routine does remove food and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth, but most of us do not get into all the nooks and crannies. Sealants protect these vulnerable areas. By placing a sealant, we are literally "sealing out" food and plaque.

What is a dental sealant?

Dental sealant is a plastic coating that we paint onto your chewing surfaces of your teeth. The coating of sealant bonds into the grooves of your teeth, forming a protective shield for each tooth sealed.

We generally use sealants as a preventative measure to help avoid tooth decay on the biting surfaces of back teeth (molars). The natural grooves of these teeth often trap food that is can be missed with casual brushing and rinsing, particularly in children who we know are still learning the importance of brushing. Trapped food allows bacteria to multiply, eventually causing tooth decay and eventually more dental problems.

Dental Sealants & Your Teeth

Sealants are painted directly onto the tooth. We look for the tooth surfaces that we feel would most benefit from this protection. Sealants are very durable, but they are not permanent. Sealants last about 5 years before needing replacement. Ask Dr. Pak at our Puyallup, WA office for more information.

Sealants are a cost-effective, preventative measure that helps you reduce the likelihood of tooth decay on your molars. They do not replace the need for your daily dental routine of brushing and flossing.
