Sealants

Sealants Berwyn Dental Connection

Sealants are highly effective in preventing tooth decay and cavities on your molars and premolars. These areas are the most susceptible to cavities due to the anatomized grooves.

Typically, children get sealants on their permanent molars and premolars as soon as these teeth come in. These sealants can protect the teeth through the cavity-prone years of ages 6 to 14. However, adults without decay or fillings in their molars can also benefit from sealants.

The process of applying sealants is easy and fast. The application steps are as follows:

  • A thorough cleaning is done
  • Each tooth is then dried
  • A solution is put on the chewing surfaces of the teeth to help the sealant bond to the teeth
  • The sealant is painted onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds directly to the tooth and hardens.

Sealants act as a barrier and protect the enamel from plaque and acids. They may last for several years before a reapplication is needed. As long as the sealant remains intact, the tooth surface will be protected from decay.

Sealants are not a substitute for brushing your teeth. It is important to maintain proper oral hygiene and keep up with professional dental cleanings. Also, sealants do not protect between the teeth, so it is essential to continue to floss daily.

Berwyn Dental Connection has wonderful dentists and staff. Everyone is friendly and takes time to answer questions. They are also good with children. My two children are nervous about visiting the dentist but the hygienist and dentist always put them at ease. They let them bring their own toothpaste too!

I had nothing but great experiences and good things to say until today. I received a phone call from a law office to collect a debt. I work long hours and every time I call the office is about to close and nobody picks up. I have left a voicemail asking for a call back to pay my debt and instead received a text message “asking how can we help”. Mind you the attorney that called I thought maybe it was an attorney I was waiting for a call back from and they give the wrong name. I stupidly gave out my name and received a call back a minute later with a voicemail saying they’re attempting to collect a debt. What’s hilarious to me about the whole thing is that I called multiple times after receiving this X-ray service asking about the results because nobody ever called me back with them like I was told would happen when I left. The taller Latina with long black hair who typically takes payments after a visit took my X-rays…..seemed like it was her first time and assured me the dentist would call me. Never did-But you all sure care more about the debt. I’m being charged for something I’ve received no proof or word of with results. I will not be back. The dentist here are amazing but the customer service… although very hospitable seems very money hungry rather than caring.

This was a first time visit for my 97 yr old aunt. From the moment we walked into the office we received a warm welcome and Veronica, office staff, greeted my aunt by first name which made her feel she was expected and special. My aunt was experiencing severe pain and required several extractions. Dr. Lares took all the necessary steps to ensure my aunt was comfortable and explained in easy terms what the extraction procedure entailed. My aunt experienced no pain once she was home. Veronica, office staff, called same evening to check on how my aunt was doing and receptive to questions I had. I am so impressed with the professionalism of the staff and care my aunt received, I am switching dentist and further recommended my family members to Dr. Lares. A sincere thank you for the 'EXCELLENT' service and care received.

I had a wonderful experience at this dentist. Everyone is so friendly and supportive. Veronica was so nice on the phone and explained everything to me. Dr Peralta-Sugano made me feel very comfortable as I needed a tooth extracted. I felt nothing!! The dental assistant was also so gentle and friendly. I have found my new dentist!
