We offer dental sealants in Scottsdale, Arizona, which provide protection for your back teeth and molars from tooth decay.
Dr. Ronald C. Russo provides sealants that are thin, plastic coatings that are painted on the chewing surfaces of your teeth. These are needed because your permanent teeth and molars are very important to your dental health. If you keep them healthy and strong, you will be able to continue to eat the foods you know and love and never worry about decay or infection. The sealants are meant to shield the tooth from food particles, plaque, and bacteria that could get stuck in the crevices can cause decay.
Your dentist will begin the process by deeply cleaning your tooth. Once the tooth is cleaned and dried, he will apply a gentle acid solution that will slightly roughen up the tooth’s surface, which helps the sealant bond to the tooth. The tooth is then rinsed and dried. Your dentist will finish the process by painting the sealant onto the tooth and hardening it with a special light.
