Dental Sealants in Hamden

Placing an Emphasis on Long-Lasting Dental Solutions

At Forrester Dental, we think it’s safe to assume that every patient who walks through our doors wants to protect their teeth from decay. That is why we often recommend dental sealants, a preventative treatment that adds an additional barrier of protection against bacteria and infection on the teeth that need the support the most.

Experience our warm environment and high-quality care firsthand and schedule your sealant appointment at (203) 295-3434.

What to Expect with the Sealant Process

Dental sealants are used to coat the surface of the permanent back molars that are responsible for the bulk of chewing. Due to the high demand placed on these teeth, it is advisable to take extra steps to protect them from decay.

When you go in to receive dental sealants in Hamden, your dentist will:

  • Thoroughly clean the surface of your teeth with a high-powered rotating brush
  • Coat the chewing surfaces of your molars with an acidic solution that is intended to make the enamel more receptive to the sealant
  • Rinse the solution and dry the teeth
  • Place the sealant in liquid form before hardening it into place with a specialized light

Are Sealants Necessary?

Molars have deep grooves on their chewing surfaces that put them at more risk for decay than other teeth. The fissures can be challenging to clean to the extent that is necessary to prevent the enamel from being worn down and keep cavities from forming. Once sealants are applied, food, bacteria, and plaque are not able to work their way into the grooves any longer. The smoother surface provided by the sealant also helps make brushing and other at-home cleaning methods more effective and dependable.

We have over two decades of experience providing dental sealants in Hamden. Contact us today at (203) 295-3434 to make an appointment.
