At Luminous Dental Studio, we offer our patients hydrophilic pit and fissure dental sealants that are 100% BPA-free to guard against tooth decay and cavities. How? Our general dentists, Dr. Minho Chang or Dr. Nam Kim, coat the surface of the bigger back teeth (premolars and molars) with a liquid dental sealant. We trust the safety and effectiveness of our BPA-free dental sealants to leave no room within the small crevices and hard-to-clean areas to collect bacteria, food, plaque, and all unwelcome oral debris that cause cavities.
At your next dental cleaning and examination, ask Dr. Chang or Dr. Kim their thoughts on your appropriateness for the application of dental sealant to protect your teeth. When maintained with a normal oral hygiene routine, your teeth should remain covered and protected on a microscopic level for many years. Many people believe that dental sealant is only suitable for children with developing teeth. However, our dental practice also offers sealant to adults who are cavity prone. We want the best care to be given to our patients of all ages — especially patients who are at higher risk of tooth decay. Call us today and request an appointment with either Drs. Chang or Kim to talk about all our dental services in Frisco, TX. We hope to see you and your family soon!
Ideal candidates for dental sealants would be anyone who is prone to getting cavities or oral diseases. Most often, sealants are recommended for young children and teenagers who may have a more difficult time maintaining regular teeth brushing habits. Sealant application is a fast, simple treatment that typically requires no anesthesia or sedation, which makes it an easy procedure for patients of any age.
What to Expect
During your consultation, Dr. Chang or Dr. Kim will first assess your teeth to determine if sealants are the right treatment for you. Prior to the actual application, your teeth will be cleaned and polished to remove tartar, plaque, and bacteria. Then Dr. Chang or Dr. Kim will apply the liquid sealant layer by layer with a small brush over your teeth. The sealant works its way into the nooks and crannies of your teeth (also known as pits and fissures) and is set to harden with a special curing light. After the application, we will ensure that the sealant has settled correctly to ensure we are providing the best care even when it comes to applying a simple dental sealant to keep food, bacteria, and more from destroying your teeth faster.
Following the treatment, you should be able to return to your normal routine. It is important that you follow your regular oral hygiene routine, including brushing twice a day, using mouthwash, and flossing. You should also avoid putting unnecessary pressure on your teeth or eating sticky foods. With proper care, dental sealants can be long-lasting, safe, and worth the investment.
Keeping you Protected
You or your family can benefit from a dental sealant to protect your teeth. They are a great way to prevent future dental procedures, like fillings for cavities. With a relatively quick and easy application, sealant can help you and your family experience better dental visits and improved overall oral health.
