Part of our goal at Saigh Family Dental is to not only treat negative conditions, but to prevent them from occurring in the first place. Childhood is an optimal time to begin protecting teeth before children are exposed to major decay and damage. Sealants are a simple preventive treatment where a thin layer of plastic is painted onto the chewing surfaces of your child’s teeth. These tooth surfaces are hard to clean and prone to infection. By using sealants, this area becomes smooth, easy to clean, and protected from decay.
It takes only a matter of minutes to apply a dental sealant in Iron River, Michigan. Dr. Saigh, our dentist, will clean the tooth and apply a gentle solution to roughen the tooth if necessary. A rougher surface helps the plastic bond to the original structure of the tooth. Once the sealant is painted on, it is hardened with an ultraviolent light. Dental sealants are quick, easy, and painless. Our dental team is committed to providing your entire family with treatments that will benefit their individual smiles. For more information on sealants, we invite you to call our dental office today. We are happy to answer all of your questions and schedule your appointment. We are dedicated to protecting your smile!
