Dental Sealants

Tampa Cosmetic Dentistry Dental sealants are a thin coat of clear resin that is applied to the biting surfaces of teeth, usually the rear molars. The back teeth are more prone to cavities because is difficult to reach them with a tooth brush and the surfaces contain pits and grooves that easily trap bacteria. It is hard for many adults to clean their back molars and almost impossible for our young Florida children.

Dental sealants fill in the pits and grooves on the rear molars to create a smooth surface. Valrico dentists most often recommend sealants for children’s permanent back teeth, though sometimes they are used for adults, too.

Valrico parents may not realize how quickly a cavity can form in a young child’s mouth. Many Valrico area kids develop cavities even before they start kindergarten! It is vital that our local parents start regular dental visits early.

Dental sealants protect teeth that have no decay (primary prevention) and also prevent further decay progression in teeth that show very early signs of disease (secondary prevention).

At Five Star Dental Care, we take special care of our Valrico general and cosmetic dental clients. We want each dental visit to be pleasant and painless so that patients will never develop a fear of the dentist.

I am Jeff Bynum of Five Star Dental Care. I don’t believe that cavities are unavoidable. Call my office at 813-653-2273 to schedule a Valrico dental exam. ¬†We also offer emergency dental care for patients in the Valrico area.

I provide comprehensive restorative and cosmetic dentistry for Valrico people of all ages. My office is located at 3203 LIthia Pinecrest Rd. in Valrico. You can learn more about my practice at /about-us/.
