Many people have teeth that contain deep pits and grooves where bacteria and food particles can amass and cause decay. Unfortunately, this is one of nature’s flaws, and there is nothing that an individual can do to solve this problem. However, Frankel Dentistry can help.

The solution to this problem is dental sealants. Dental sealants are a thin plastic film which fills in the pits and grooves of your natural tooth, ensuring that bacteria can no longer nest there and cause decay. Once a sealant is in place, it is a fantastic barrier to keep bacteria and food particles out of these crevices. The best part about this solution is that they last up to ten years, saving you both time and money in the future.

This process is pain free and easy. Frankel Dentistry will begin the process by identifying any spots where decay is occurring and fill these spots before the procedure continues. Then we will prepare your teeth with our cleaning and etching solution. Fifteen seconds later, this solution is rinsed away and replaced with the sealant. We will then harden the solution with a curing light.
