Dental Sealants - Shelby Twp., MI

HPS Dental understands that maintaining a beautiful and confident smile is immeasurable, so we offer dental sealants – an effective preventive solution against tooth decay – as an integral component of dental care for children and adults alike. Sealants could be your key to long-term oral wellness!

Understanding the Power of Dental Sealants

Imagine having a thin, clear protective shield covering the chewing surfaces of your back teeth (molars and premolars). That is precisely what dental sealants do! Dental sealants help create an easy-to-clean surface that decreases the risk of cavities by significantly decreasing food particles’ hiding places by filling in deep grooves where food particles and bacteria gather.

How Sealants Fight Decay

Tooth decay isn’t solely the result of sugary treats. Bacteria in your mouth feed on leftover food particles, which break down over time to form acids that attack tooth enamel, leading to cavities. Sealants provide a barrier between bacteria and acids, preventing them from directly damaging teeth.

Sealants Are An Investment for a Bright Future

Dental sealants are essential at any age, but they are an absolute game-changer for children. Young smiles are especially prone to cavities as their brushing and flossing habits develop further; therefore, sealants provide additional protection and give kids a headstart toward maintaining healthy teeth for life.

Sealants can provide adults with many advantages as well. Sealants may be an ideal addition to your preventive care routine if you are susceptible to cavities or have deep grooves on your back teeth.

An Easy and Painless Sealant Process

At HPS Dental, we make applying dental sealants a hassle-free experience. Just visit us!

Prep and Clean: Your dentist or hygienist thoroughly cleans and dries each tooth before Etch and Bond: With a gentle solution applied directly onto the surface of each tooth, an even stronger bond for sealant is created.
Apply and Cure: Sealant is carefully applied, filling all nooks and crannies. A special light hardens it quickly, resulting in long-term protection and easy maintenance requirements.

Dental sealants provide long-term cavity protection. HPS Dental’s team will monitor your sealants at regular checkups and suggest reapplication as necessary. Remember, sealants are potent tools, but they shouldn’t replace good oral hygiene practices such as flossing regularly or brushing twice daily; use both in conjunction with sealants for maximum effectiveness!
