Sealants – An Elegant Way to Shield Teeth from Decay without Invasive Procedures

Dental sealants offer a refined approach to safeguarding your teeth from cavities. They are a sophisticated plastic material meticulously applied to the chewing surfaces of the premolars and molars. These back teeth are often more susceptible to decay.

Proper brushing and flossing can eliminate food particles and plaque from the smooth surfaces of teeth. However, conventional toothbrush bristles may not penetrate all the depressions and grooves to eradicate food and plaque fully. That's where sealants come into play, offering protection to these vulnerable areas by "sealing out" unwanted elements like plaque and food.

The Procedure at Gorbatov Dentistry

At the world-renowned Gorbatov Dentistry, sealants are gracefully applied by Dr. Dmitry Gorbatov himself, or his highly skilled team. The process involves painting the sealant onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds with the tooth and solidifies. This plastic resin integrates into the depressions and grooves (pits and fissures) of the chewing surfaces of back teeth. The sealant then serves as a refined barrier, protecting the enamel from plaque and acids. As long as the sealant remains intact, your tooth surface will be shielded from decay. Sealants are highly resilient and endure normal chewing forces, often lasting for years before reapplication is required. During your regular dental visits at our oceanfront office on Ocean Drive, Dr. Gorbatov will evaluate the condition of the sealants and reapply them if necessary.

The chances of developing pit and fissure decay can start early in life. Therefore, children and teenagers are often the prime candidates for sealants. But adults seeking a pristine smile can benefit from sealants as well.

Essential Factors in Preventing Tooth Decay and Sustaining a Vibrant Smile:

  • Brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste accepted by dental experts
  • Cleaning between the teeth daily with floss or another interdental cleaner
  • Adhering to a balanced diet and moderating snack consumption
  • Regular visits to your dentist, who cherishes and takes immense care of every patient's dental health

If you're interested in exploring how dental sealants can contribute to your radiant confidence and well-being, we invite you to schedule an appointment with us at our distinguished dental clinic. Allow us to assist you in achieving a smile that reflects your inner elegance and excellence.
