Dental Sealants

Dentistry for Children

A dental sealant is a clear plastic material applied to the chewing surfaces of permanent back teeth (molars and premolars) where decay occurs most often. Pits and fissures are depressions and grooves in the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. They are difficult to keep clean because toothbrush bristles cannot reach into them. The sealant forms a thin covering that keeps out plaque and food and decreases the risk of tooth decay. As long as the sealant remains intact, the tooth surface will be protected from decay. Our team at Southeast Family Dental would be happy to apply sealants to your child’s teeth at their next cleaning appointment.

Consultation and filling of one tooth

My visit with Dr. Bohnert was very satisfactory as always. Got a filling I didn’t know I needed and a question answered about a problem I was concerned about.

Perfect

Excellent experience, from beginning to end. Scheduling the appointment, receiving reminders of the appointment, no waiting when you arrive, professional and expert service yet provided in a friendly manner that gives you a comfortable feeling. This is true of this recent visit and of all the several previous visits. I could not ask for more.
