Sealants

At Langston Amador Dental Group, we firmly believe in the power of preventive care to help our patients maintain optimal oral health. The very first step in a preventive oral care program is to avoid cavities, which are the major cause of tooth loss and dental health deterioration. One of the preventive oral care treatments we offer is dental sealants.

A dental sealant is a thin coat of plastic that is applied to the teeth to smooth out the surface and prevent the deposit of plaque and food particles. Dental sealants are mostly used as a form of preventive treatment for kids but have been found to be equally effective for adults.

Why are sealants needed?

The chewing surfaces of our back teeth are irregular and have grooves and fissures in them. Food debris, plaque and bacteria can inhabit these spaces. The bristles on a toothbrush cannot always reach these areas, and thus they become the perfect breeding ground for cavities.

The application of dental sealants is a simple and painless procedure and can be completed in a single sitting. First, we carefully examine your teeth. If any decay exists, it is gently removed. The tooth is then cleaned and dried, and an etching material is applied to it to help the sealants bond. After another rinse and drying, the liquid sealant is painted on to the tooth. Then, we wait for the sealant to harden. Sometimes, a special dental curing light is used to aid the hardening process. Once the sealant hardens, you are ready to go!

Our Happy Patients

"I had been having intense jaw pain, so I went to Dr. Langston and Dr. Amadors office for a consult. They diagnosed and explained the issue and game plan in a language I could understand. They made me a unique night guard that has taken my jaw pain symptoms away and probably saved my teeth! The cool thing is that the technology of the guard is both hard and soft making it very comfy. Thank you Dr. Langston and Dr. Amador for a great experience but more importantly the solution I needed."

"Not only are Dr. Amador and Dr. Langston two of the best dentists clinically but they are extremely down-to-earth and sincerely care about you. They make you feel like family and going to the dentist relaxing and actually enjoyable. Ok...Well as much as it could be at least... Haha. If you need a dentist in greater pompano beach look no further!"

"I have been a patient of Dr. Amador's for at least 15 years. I first went to him after bouncing from dentist to dentist most of my life. I found him and his entire staff to be extremely professional, honest, kind, friendly and caring. The prices are reasonable and he accepts insurance, which has been a great help over the years. Dr. Amador does not perform unnecessary procedures or inflate prices. The years have only increased my respect and affection for all these wonderful people. Not only do Dr. Amador and his staff keep up to date with all the latest in dental technology, they treat their patients like friends and family, and genuinely care about us."
