Dental Sealents in Rego Park, NY

To keep your teeth clean and healthy, brushing and flossing are fantastic habits to keep. For an extra level of protection, however, consider having dental sealants applied. Your dentist at Dental Arts Rego Park can treat your teeth to give them additional protection against cavities.

What are dental sealants in 11374?

Dental sealants in Rego Park, NY are thin plastic coatings that are usually applied to the occlusal (chewing) surface of the back teeth (molars and premolars). Teeth have grooves and depressions in them, and the back molars can be especially tricky to clean. Toothbrushes and floss, and even mouthwashes, can leave traces of food debris and plaque behind, potentially leading to tooth decay. Dental sealants fill in these grooves and cover them over to form a protective barrier between the teeth and harmful substances. Sealants are usually recommended for adolescents, as they are at a higher risk for cavities than adults. Teeth must be fully erupted beyond the gums to receive dental sealants.

Procedure

To apply sealants, the teeth being treated must first be cleaned thoroughly. They will be rinsed and dried before having an acidic solution applied to them to be etched. This means that the solution will create small microscopic areas in the tooth surface to make it slightly rougher and help the dental sealants near me to adhere better to the teeth. The solution will then be rinsed away and the teeth will be dried again. The dental sealants will be applied in a liquid form and hardened with a special light. Once this process is completed, they will become a hard plastic varnish coating. Though the teeth can then be used again as normal (there is no recovery time necessary, as with some other dental procedures), it is recommended that you avoid eating, drinking, or rinsing for about half an hour after the procedure to allow the sealants to set completely.

It is important to note that teeth that have been treated with dental sealants can still be at risk for tooth decay if good oral hygiene habits are not kept. This means brushing twice a day and flossing daily.

Dr. Zina and her staff are amazing. I felt very informed about the procedure before hand. They even gave me tips to heal and recover as quickly and comfortably as possible. Overall, a great experience and very happy I chose this practice for my wisdom teeth removal.

It was wonderful being able to remove my teeth and get my new set on the same day. I didn’t have to go to work with no teeth. The staff was wonderful and told me what to expect every step of the way. The staff was awesome very accommodating, they made sure that I was comfortable.

Dr. Zina made me feel so comfortable that I now bring my entire family to see her. She is friendly and sweet and has a very welcoming personality. She has a very calm persona and makes you feel very comfortable. My 9 year old now looks forward to going to the dentist. Thank you Dr Gotlieb for the wonderful care you took with my family and I.

Faye Bates

This office is wonderful- very clean facility with friendly and courteous staff. Dr. Zina Gotlieb is so nice and personable, and she spent more time counseling and answering questions than I have experienced at any other dental office. And she did not try to push any unnecessary treatments. I highly recommend this practice!

Dr. Zina is an asset as shes always there to great you with a smile and reminding my forgetful self about my upcoming appointments.
