What Are Dental Sealants? Princeton, NJ
Dental Sealants Princeton, NJ

When your child visits the Princeton, NJ dentist for a cleaning we’ll also do a check-up on their teeth. We look to see if things are developing properly, if there are any cavities, or anything else that needs our attention.  Upon inspection of their teeth, our dentist may recommend having sealants placed on your child’s permanent molars.

What Is A Dental Sealant?

A dental sealant is a thin, plastic-like coating that is placed over the deep pits on the biting surface of back teeth.

Why Are Dental Sealants Necessary?

Dental sealants aren’t necessary, they’re more of a suggestion to help prevent tooth decay. When the material bonds to the pits and grooves of the tooth, it forms a smoother, more leveled biting surface. As a result, the tooth doesn’t collect food particles as much, and brushing debris away is easier, which decreases the chances of getting a cavity on the tooth. Essentially, a dental sealant serves as a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth.

Who Should Get Sealants?

Sealants are most commonly recommended in children because when their permanent molars (back teeth) start coming in, they tend to have deep pits and grooves.  That’s not to say that some adults wouldn’t benefit from this procedure as well. Our Princeton dentist will evaluate your teeth at your dental checkup and provide their recommendations.

Prime Dental care has a great friendly staff. I had a wonderful experience with my hygienist Kate, she was very thorough, professional, and kind! Dr. Ma was informative and did a wonderful job of explaining everything. Would highly recommend Prime Dental Care!

Dr. Ma and her staff are very friendly and super thorough. They take the time to explain every part of the care and are invested in my overall dental health. I would recommend them to everyone!

Aidan L.

I came in for my first appointment with severe pain in my wisdom tooth and they were very helpful from the start. I don’t have insurance, but they have an in-house plan that’s very affordable and can save over $1000 a year and I’m definitely signing up for it. The hygienist was super kind and informative and the dentist was the same. I got here 30 mins early and they started me as soon as I finished my paperwork anyway. Thanks to everyone here for a great experience.
