Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants in Raritan, NJ are a great idea for patients of all ages. Dental sealants in Raritan, NJ are mostly given to children as they are used to prevent tooth decay and just give extra protection to decay prone teeth. At our Bridgewater, Raritan, Sommerville, Branchburg, NJ, 08869 dental office, we use a special sealant that is thin and applies directly onto the surface of molars, premolars, and any deep grooves of the teeth that are primarily used for chewing. The sealants are cured with a UV light and create a smooth surface on the teeth that are then easy to clean and keep bacteria, infection, and decay out of you or your child’s mouth.

Why Do I Need Dental Sealants in Raritan, NJ?

A good reason to talk to Dr. Koren about dental sealants in Bridgewater, NJ is if you suffer from one or more of these symptoms:

  • Children & Teenagers: Cavity-prone years of a child’s life are between the ages of 6 and 16, but they can even begin as soon as the first permanent back teeth appear.
  • Adults: If your tooth surfaces have deep grooves or depressions that decay gets caught in.
  • Babies: Sealants are rarely done on babies, but if the baby has deep grooves and depressions in their fresh teeth.

What Happens During the Procedure for Dental sealants in Sommerville, NJ?

Getting dental sealants in Raritan, NJ is an extremely easy and convenient procedure, and is also affordable.
