Dental sealants Houston


At Antoine Dental in Houston, we believe prevention is the best dental treatment our patients can receive, which is why we are proud to offer dental sealants for children and adults. Dental sealants are a mainstay of preventive dentistry that can help prevent cavities in treated teeth. In many cases, dental sealants are placed over pits and fissures on the chewing surfaces of molars, where plaque and tartar are more likely to collect and foster the growth of bacteria. By supporting optimal oral health, this treatment at our dental clinic in Houston can save our patients time and money in the long term.



How Can I Get Dental Sealants?

Before placing dental sealants, your dentist at Antoine Dental cleans the teeth thoroughly with a rotating brush. After drying the teeth to be sealed, your dentist prepares those teeth with a solution so that the sealant will stick. Next, the teeth are dried again to make way for the sealant. Finally, your dentist places the sealant on the teeth and hardens it with a special light or other method depending on the type of sealant being used. 

 Look Good. Feel Good. Chew Good.


It can be easy to lose sight of a few important things. One thing which often gets overlooked is the importance of your oral health. At Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX, we’re proud to offer the convenience of same-day dental cleanings and exams and quality procedures for everything from braces to dental implants.

What Are Sealants?

In cavity-prone teeth, bacteria often attack the natural grooves on the chewing surfaces because of difficulty cleaning them thoroughly. Sealants are special applications which help protect against cavities by filling in tiny cracks and holes on the exterior of the teeth. The placement of sealant on these areas does not necessarily prevent the accumulation of plaque and tartar, but it does guard against erosion by the acid that oral bacteria produce there. Sealants are especially beneficial for children ages 6 to 12, though adults can also benefit from receiving sealants. Sealants last for about 2-4 years before they need replacements.

Do I Need Dental Sealants?

Even if you dont have a cavity or a small crack on your teeth, you can still benefit from sealants as they act as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids.

How Long Do Sealants Last?

Dental sealants can las for several years depending on your oral habits and exposure to acidic or hard foods. During routine exams, your dentist can check sealed teeth to determine whether re-application is warranted.

Are Dental Sealants Permanent?

Dental sealants are not permanent. The NIDCR estimates that sealants can last up to 10 years with proper care. Sealants gradualy wear away over time so you dont have to worry about visiting the dentists and getting them removed.

Can Adults Get Teeth Sealants?

The most common age that requires sealants are kids and teenagers because of the likelyhood of developing decay in the depressions and grooves of the pre molars and morals. However, adults can benefit from sealants to avoid the risk of decay/cavities.
