Dental sealants are a dental treatment that is specifically used for prevention measures in order to protect the teeth from cavities and decay. Dental sealants “seal out” tooth decay from damaging the premolars and molars. A plastic material is painted on the back teeth to prevent plaque and bacteria from growing in the deep pits and fissures of the molars. Dental sealants can help to protect the teeth from decay for up to four years. Crabapple Dental in Alpharetta, GA, is proud to offer dental sealants to patients of all ages as a preventive measure. Flossing and brushing the teeth every day are essential elements of maintaining strong oral health, but they often do not do enough. Flossing and brushing only help to remove food particles and bacteria from the surfaces of the teeth. Neither are designed to reach deep into the pits and depressions of the molars in order to remove food and plaque. Dental sealants protect these vulnerable areas in the premolars and molars by sealing out damaging substances.

Dental sealants are one of the easiest, yet most beneficial, dental procedures available to patients of all ages. After a thorough dental cleaning, the back teeth are prepared for sealants. This involves drying the teeth thoroughly, applying a substance that roughens up the surfaces to allow for precise bonding, the dental sealant material being painted on the teeth, and then the material being hardened by a curing light. The process takes approximately two minutes (or less) per tooth, and it is entirely painless. The dental sealant material seeps into the grooves of the premolars and molars in order to form a barrier against harmful plaque that develops after eating and drinking. As long as dental sealants remain in place, the back teeth are protected from damage and decay. Because dental sealants last for two to four years, they are well worth any out of pocket expense.

If you are interested in having dental sealants applied to your teeth or to a family member’s teeth, please contact Crabapple Dental today. We are always looking for ways to partner with you in order to develop the most beneficial oral health care. Being proactive in preventing cavities and tooth decay is the best method for promoting a healthy and beautiful smile for life

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!!
