Sealants

The pits and grooves of your teeth are prime areas for opportunistic decay. Even regular brushing sometimes misses some of these intricate structures on the chewing surfaces of your teeth.

Enter sealants, which are thin coatings applied to the chewing surfaces designed to prevent the intrusion of bacteria and other debris into the deep crevices on the tops of your teeth.

Sealants actually were developed about 50 years ago, but didn't become commonly used until the 1970s. Today, sealants are becoming widely popular and effective; young children are great candidates for preventative measures like sealants because in many cases, decay has not set in. Even on teeth where decay is present, sealants have been shown to fight additional damage.

Sealants are applied by first cleaning the tooth surface. The procedure is followed by etching the tooth with an abrasive substance, which allows the sealant to better adhere. After the sealant is applied, a warm light source is directed to the site to promote faster drying. Sealants usually need re-application every five to 10 years.

    "My husband and I recently started treatment with Dr. Wang and have found him to be an excellent dentist.  We have found him to be cordial and professional, knowledgeable and extremely thorough.  What has been most refreshing is that he takes his time to explain his evaluation …  pointing out issues to be addressed.  During procedures he explains what he is doing and what to expect; he also checks throughout to make sure we are comfortable.  Also, with any concerns we have had, he has called personally on the phone to discuss them.  We have been very pleased with Dr. Wang’s care of our dental needs."
