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.

Dental work can be a bit intimidating. However, at Berwyn Dental Connection the entire process is professional and calming. The atmosphere is relaxing, and the staff are very personable from the front desk to the dental hygienist and even the doctors! I received a root canal performed by Dr. Lares and she and her assistant made me feel comfortable. Overall, the entire staff are professional and skilled, I'd definitely recommend.

So happy I chose The Dental Connection and Dr. Lares. I’ve been going there for over three years and am very happy with the level of care and attention I get from Dr. Lares and her crew. All of the staff is so accommodating and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at ease, especially Veronica, one of the receptionists, who is the first person to greet you!

I am one of those people who is afraid of the dentist. I searched around and read every review for the Berwyn Dental Connection. All great reviews! So I was having tooth pain. I wanted an extraction. They got me in the next day! Dr. Lars was so amazing and all of her assistants were too!! So I do have high bp. They checked it before doing any type of procedure. It was high. So she wanted to wait to proceed to make sure I was ok. After a few minutes of talking it went down and she was able to pull my tooth. She was informative and patient and kind. I will be back to see Dr. Lars. I 100% recommend Berwyn Dental Connection ❤️❤️

My 4 year old son and I just had our teeth cleaned and per usual we had the best experience ! The staff always makes us feel welcomed and like we are family. My son feels so comfortable with the staff as well as Doctor Camila that he didn’t even wince when asked if he wanted to start his cleaning (in a separate room) while I got mine done. He absolutely loves going to the dentist! Doctor Camila and staff always make sure that my concerns and questions are answered and are super flexible with appointment scheduling. They are truly the best!
