Dental Sealants in Denver

Regular brushing and flossing are the best ways to prevent cavities, but it can be difficult to clean every nook and cranny of your teeth, especially the back teeth. Molars have grooves and fissures, and therefore are a favorite place for food and bacteria to hide. Dental sealants can be applied to the chewing surface of these teeth to help prevent cavities and decay. A sealant is a thin, protective coating that adheres to the chewing surface of the molars. They have been shown to reduce the risk of decay on these teeth by nearly 80 percent.

How Do Sealants Work?

They are like raincoats for your teeth. When the bacteria that is found in everyone’s mouth meets leftover food particles, they produce acids that can create cavities. After a sealant is applied to your tooth, it keeps those bits of food out and stops bacteria from settling on the tooth.

How Are Sealants Applied?

Getting a sealant is quick and painless. Your tooth will be cleaned and dried, and an acidic gel will be applied to help the sealant bond. The sealant will then be painted on to the grooves of your tooth. A special blue light will be used to harden the sealant.

Sealants are a great preventive treatment for children and teens who are still developing proper hygiene habits. Adults can also receive sealants to protect teeth from cavities and decay. If you would like more information about sealants and other treatments to keep your family’s mouth healthy, call us today at (720) 440-7743 to set up an appointment.

Our Happy Patients

"Hadn't been to a dentist in two years because the last dentist I went to was a creep. Dr. Alex put me right at ease, and the whole staff is wonderful. I have never had a more thorough cleaning or quicker and more painless filling. Love the little camera that let me see a picture of exactly what was wrong with my old filling that needed to be replaced. So happy to have compassionate and cutting edge care in the neighborhood."

Sara O.

"Always nervous trying to find a new dentist/doctor, but Doctor Bassett made me feel so comfortable. Very fast and caring response whenever I had any trouble with a horribly pain pull front tooth. Explained things clearly in ways I could understand, and treats you like a human not just another patient to get through. The staff is also extremely nice and helpful. I can't reccomend Paloma/Doctor Bassett/ her staff enough. It doesn't hurt that the waiting room is super comfy either. If you live in or around Denver come here!"

Jacob K.

"Dr. Alex and her team are awesome! Alex was kind, knowledgeable and patient. I took my five year old son for an initial exam and was very impressed with the entire process. She easily accommodated him and provided headphones so he can watch Netflix while she was doing her thing. The office is located in the RiNo neighborhood with plenty of street parking. I would recommend this office to anyone."
