Baton Rouge Teeth Sealing Dentists
For expert teeth sealing in Baton Rouge, trust the experienced dentist and staff at Juban Cowen Dental Care. We offer teeth sealing as a part of a comprehensive preventative dental care plan for children and adults. Our mission as a dental team is to serve our patients through excellence, with a gentle touch, in a stress free environment.
A sealant is a thin, plastic coating applied to the chewing surface of molars, premolars and any deep grooves (called pits and fissures) of teeth. More than 75% of dental decay begins in these deep grooves. Teeth with these conditions are difficult for dental cleaning and are very susceptible to decay. A sealant protects the tooth by sealing deep grooves, creating a smooth surface that is easy to clean. That is why we recommend sealants for children ages 6-16 as well as for adults with tooth surfaces without decay that have deep grooves or depressions. Occasionally, we will recommend sealants for baby teeth if the teeth have deep grooves or depressions and the child is cavity prone.
Baton Rouge LA Tooth Sealants
If you live in Baton Rouge, LA and are interested in tooth sealants, call Juban Cowen Dental Care. Our dentistss or dental hygienists apply sealants in an easy, painless dental treatment that takes less then a few minutes per tooth. The teeth to be sealed are thoroughly cleaned and then surrounding with cotton to keep the area dry. A special solution is then applied to the enamel surface to help the sealant bond to the teeth. The teeth are then rinsed and dried and the sealant is carefully painted onto the enamel surface to cover the deep grooves or depressions. Depending on the type of sealant used, the material will either harden automatically or will harden with a special curing light.
