Dental Sealants
Bellevue, WA

Young boy smiling with healthy teeth after getting dental sealants at A Smiling Heart Dentistry in Bellevue, WASeal your tooth from decay with dental sealants. Sealants are a plastic material that our dentists paint onto the biting surfaces of your back molar teeth. Your back teeth are the prime spot for food debris to rest and bacteria to thrive. This area is the most vulnerable to decay and cavities because brushing and rinsing can miss food particles in the grooves of your molars. The dental sealant barrier between your tooth and bacteria protects your teeth.

Who Should Get Dental Sealants?

•  Children are an ideal candidate for dental sealants. Since children are still learning their daily oral health habits, sealants could protect them from unnecessary procedures.
•  Adults who are prone to dental decay.
•  Adults who have particularly deep grooves in their teeth. Food particles can settle and may not be removed easily or be completely missed.

Sealants are a plastic material. As a liquid it is painted onto the tooth surface where it then dries and hardens. This is a painless dental procedure. Sealants are durable but they are not permanent. Our dentists, Drs. Tigran, Furca, and Smith will want to check the status of your sealants during your biannual cleaning appointment. Dental sealants last about 5 years before needing replacement.

Sealants are a low priced, preventative step to reduce the chances of cavities on the chewing surfaces of your molars. However, sealants do not replace the need for regular brushing and flossing. Call (425) 532-3200 to contact our Bellevue office today for more information.
