Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are protective coverings that are placed on the biting surfaces of teeth.  Sealants are most often recommended for children after their 6 year molars erupt to help them prevent cavities in these teeth.  Placement of dental sealants is quick and easy, with no anesthetic required and they can normally be placed within 15 minutes.  Both, Dr. Hascall and Dr. Smith, and our hygienists are trained for sealant placement.
