Your refrigerator and freezer have seals around their doors to keep the cold air inside in order to protect the foods and beverages inside. The doors and windows of your home have seals to keep the air inside your home inside and the air (pollutants, bacteria, and other unwanted particles) out of your home outside. This makes perfect sense: you are simply taking care of and protecting your valued necessities. Well, what are you doing to keep out damaging particles that are, at this very moment, assaulting your teeth?

With every bite of food that you take and every sip of a beverage other than water that you consume, you are willingly inviting harmful particles into your mouth. Once these particles come into contact with the ever-present bacteria within your mouth, harmful acids are created and attack your teeth like it’s their job. Acids cause holes in the teeth known as cavities, and this is the first sign of dental decay. Yet, there is a simple prevention that can help protect your smile and seal out this trouble.

Dental sealants are painless and quick applications that are applied to the pre-molars and molars to “seal out” harmful substances. The back teeth are notorious for the development of cavities because they are very difficult to clean. These pre-molars and molars have very rough surfaces because these teeth are full of deep pits and grooves and have rough edges. The design of these teeth is purposeful – to help break down food so that it is easy to swallow and digest; yet, because these teeth are so difficult to clean, they often harbor harmful bacteria that can ruin your smile.

Dental sealants are simple coatings that are painted on the back teeth. After a thorough dental cleaning, the pre-molars and molars that dried and a special material is painted on the teeth. The sealant material seeps down into the deep pits and crevices and fills in the rough surfaces. Once applied, the sealants are hardened with a special curing light to ensure that they bond with the teeth. Dental sealants offer complete protection as long as they are secure in the back teeth; your dentist will check them at every visit.

At Crabapple Dental, we want to do all that we can to help you protect your smile. For those who are cavity prone or those who want to take an added measure for protecting one of their most stunning assets, dental sealants offer the protection you need. Contact us today.

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!
