I entered here after not getting my teeth cleaned nor cared for after a couple years. The hygienist was wonderful Nuvia was just so great. The way she cleaned my teeth and kept me engaged the whole appointment truly will stick with me for years to come. My teeth feel wonderful and I'm smiling like I used to. I definitely will be coming back and will be keeping her specifically for my cleanings.

A sealant is a preventive clear coating painted and cured or “sealed” into the deep groves of a tooth, where bacteria and food get trapped and develop into cavities over time. Sealants aren’t just for children anymore, these non-invasive preventive coverings are highly effective at preventing cavities on the chewing surfaces of the teeth.

There are many reasons to take extra protective measures to prevent cavities by placing a dental sealant. You may be cavity prone if you:

*Have a family history of cavities

*Are taking medications

*Have an acidic diet or acid reflux

*Eat or drink a lot of sugary foods or beverages

*Have trouble keeping up with your brushing and flossing habits

*Have a medical condition like cancer

A dental sealant is

*virtually invisible

*much less costly than a filling

*completely non-invasive

*applied without any discomfort

*highly effective in preventing cavities on the chewing surfaces of teeth

How dental sealants are applied in a few short minutes:

  1. The tooth is cleaned and dried
  2. A solution is applied to help bond the sealant to the tooth
  3. The protective resin material called a sealant is applied
  4. A curing light is used to strengthen and harden the sealant

How long do sealants last?

From two to ten years, depending on how well they are maintained

How effective is a sealant?

Dental sealants can reduce cavity risk by up to 70%

If you care about preventing dental problems before they happen, or worry about getting cavities, gain peace of mind with dental sealants for children and adults at Dental Arts of Hastings-on-Hudson. Add this procedure to your next preventive checkup and cleaning for minimal time and cost.
