At Pacific Dental Group, we understand that sometimes brushing and flossing your teeth is not enough to prevent plaque and tartar from accumulating on your teeth, especially in those hard-to-reach places. It's difficult to clean the pits and grooves on your back teeth, especially for our younger patients. Dental sealants give your teeth the added protection they need against decay and cavities.

Dental sealants are a plastic coating that is applied to the pits and grooves found on the chewing surface of molars. The sealant protects teeth against bacteria that can cause decay. Sealants seal the teeth, and the pits and grooves are made smoother. Plaque is less likely to stay on the tooth.

The procedure is straightforward. First, the doctor will begin the treatment by carefully cleaning your teeth. Next, the top surface of the tooth is sanded slightly for the sealant to adhere. Each tooth is rinsed and dried thoroughly. The sealant is painted directly on the tooth, and a curing light helps to harden the coating.

Sealants are recommended for children as a preventive measure against tooth decay once the permanent teeth have erupted.

Our Happy Patients

"I am thrilled to have found such a great dentist in Los Angeles. Several people at my work use this dental practice and highly recommended it. When I relocated here a few months ago I knew that I would be needing a crown on one of my lower back teeth and I was putting it off because that part of the jaw is so sensitive. Dr. Garcia was amazing and had such a precise and gentle touch that I hardly notice I was getting a shot. I love the friendly staff and feel safe and welcome each time I visit. The free teeth whitening club is a great client goodwill gift and I'm proudly showing off my pearly white chompers!"

"It's weird to say I loved getting the screws put to my teeth, but as far as dentists go, these guys are some of the best I've ever been to. Friendly staff as well. I recommend going to them if you're in the area and looking for some dental health care goodness."
