About Dental Sealants
To prevent tooth decay, cavities, and other dental problems, general dentist Dr. Camelia Cooper may apply dental sealants to the patient's teeth for lasting protection. Dental sealants are a plastic resin that can be easily applied to the tops of the premolars and molars to act as a barrier against plaque, tarter, and bacteria. At Sweet Tooth Dental Loft in Frisco, TX, Dr. Cooper aims to be proactive with her patient's oral health and dental sealants are a fast way to fortify the crevices of the back teeth that are not always reached with regular brushing. When patients follow a good oral care routine after their dental sealant is applied, the treatment can last several years and help the patient receive better annual dental exams.

What to Expect
Sealant is a fairly easy procedure that involves plastic resin being painted on the premolars or molars, where it bonds to the tooth and hardens. The sealant fills in and fits into the grooves of the teeth, creating a comfortable, protective barrier. As a preventative method to prevent decay or even tooth lose, sealants work to maintain the health of the tooth for years. Dr. Cooper will determine if sealant is a good option for each patient during their consultation and if needed, will schedule a procedure date. Once the sealant has hardened on the tooth, the patient can continue with their regular routine.
Patients can anticipate returning to their regular routines immediately following the procedure. Dr. Cooper will provide them with any special instructions before they leave our office. To ensure optimal oral health, patients should maintain a regular oral hygiene routine that includes brushing twice a day, using mouthwash, and flossing. It is also recommended that the patient continue to schedule annual examinations and bi-annual teeth cleanings at Sweet Tooth Dental Loft.
