Sealants protect the surfaces of teeth with groves and pits, especially the chewing surfaces of back teeth where most cavities are found. Sealants are made of shaded, tooth colored plastic and are applied to the teeth to help keep them cavity – free.
How do sealants work?
Even if your child brushes and flosses carefully, it is difficult – sometimes impossible – to clean the tiny grooves and pits on certain teeth. Toothbrush bristles are just too thick to reach into the pits and fissures. Food and bacteria build up in these depressions, placing your child in danger of tooth decay. Sealants “seal out” food and plaque, thus reducing the risk for decay.
Our mission is to provide specialized and comprehensive care for infants, children, and adolescents in a friendly, safe, and state-of-the-art environment with a focus on prevention and education for the families. Dr. Elliott, Dr. Molina, and our TEAM are here to positively change this generation’s view of going to the dentist, one child at a time.
"You all are the best! Our girls have been fortunate to have been cared for by the entire team and we will miss seeing you.
We hope that our grandchildren will be able to be patients
(when the time comes!) Thanks to everyone!"
Courtney B. said about Vanessa – “She was wonderful when cleaning my daughter’s teeth – “drawing letters, etc.”
She had tons of tricks – my daughter didn’t even know she had anything done.”
