Dental Sealants

The biting surfaces of our molars or back teeth are ideal places for decay-causing particles. This is because they have grooves and depressions in them which can trap food particles and bacteria. Your toothbrush and floss are often unable to reach these places, and this can lead to cavities and decay.

Sealants are an invisible, thin layer of plastic that is painted on to the grooves and depressions on the chewing surface of the back teeth to prevent decay. Sealants are commonly used on the permanent molars of children, but can also be used for adults who are at high risk of cavities. They are long-lasting and can protect your teeth for many years.

The application of sealants to the teeth is a quick, easy and painless process and can be done in a single sitting. Before a sealant is applied, an etching gel is placed on the teeth to roughen up the surface which allows the sealant to bond nicely. The etching solution is then washed off, the tooth is dried again, and the sealant material is painted on the teeth. The procedure is complete once the sealant dries and we have checked your teeth.

It is important to brush and floss properly and take care of your oral hygiene after getting sealants on your teeth. It is also vital to visit our practice for regular examinations and professional cleanings, during which we will check your sealants for wear and tear and reapply them if needed.

Our Happy Patients

"I love this place.....Great staff and Dr. Porwal is wonderful. I just finished my Invisalign trays and she and her great staff made my smile beautiful!"

Ryan A.

"I have had dentures most of my life, Dr. Porwal is the first dentist to go the extra mile to make my new teeth exactly how I wanted them to look, (fabulous)! The receptionist Ashley was always very nice, along with the other front end personnel. I would recommend Comfort Dental to anyone in need of a personal touch to make your smile something you want to do every day. Thank you Julie V. From Oakley Ca."

"Dr. Porwal is good at what she does. I had to see someone else when she was out of town recently and it really brought home how much better she was when I had a recent alternative to compare her work with. Very good with pain management. Also the office uses up to date technology and I prefer the restorations I have had done with her lazer over the drill work of dentists still using that. They offer late appointments so I have no trouble scheduling around my work schedule."
