Grooves in the top of the molars tend to harbor more food particles and buildup and are more susceptible to having cavities. Dental sealants, a primary aspect of preventive dentistry, can shield the molars from dental disease resulting from decay. These thin, defensive sealants are composed of an invisible or milky-colored substance that is painted onto the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Once set, sealants help safeguard molars and provide a smoother exterior that is easier to clean. Dental sealants offered at Pipe Creek Dental Center not only ward off cavities but might also lessen your children's needs for tooth-colored fillings or other restorative procedures down the road. Talk to Dr. Walker during your twice-yearly dental appointments at our Pipe Creek, TX facility to discover if you or your child could benefit from dental sealants.

At Pipe Creek Dental Center, we recommend sealants for our Pipe Creek, TX patients as an added preventive step for your teeth. These sealants give multiple benefits to our patients, such as:

  • Preserve time and expense by keeping your mouth healthy
  • Discreet, camouflaged material
  • Protection against tartar and plaque buildup
  • Good percentage of protection against decay

At Pipe Creek Dental Center, receiving dental sealants is a straightforward, easy treatment that usually does not call for anesthesia. As a first step, Dr. Walker will examine the teeth to determine if dental sealants would be the right treatment for you or your child. Young people 6 – 12 years old are more likely to develop decay on the tops of their molars and premolars, making them ideal candidates for dental sealants. To prepare the teeth for the sealants, a professional on our staff will polish the enamel to get rid of any buildup, food particles, and germs from the chewing surfaces. The enamel is then dried, and a thin coat of sealant product is applied carefully into the grooves of the tooth using a tiny brush. An innovative curing light is then set over the tooth, which will strengthen the sealant casting in about 10 – 20 seconds. Once each sealant is in position, our team will check your jaws for alignment and provide you with instructions about how to efficiently take care of your sealants.

Immediately following your sealant appointment, you or your child will be able to carry on with your normal routine. Over the subsequent days, it will be crucial to avoid consuming tacky or hard foods to help keep your sealants from chipping as they set into your molars. Dr. Walker also advises patients to adopt a decent dental hygiene routine, including flossing and brushing their teeth no less than twice each day. When taken care of appropriately, dental sealants should remain in good condition for many years. Our professionals at Pipe Creek Dental Center will examine your mouth during regular oral evaluations and inform you when the sealants should be reapplied.

Staff is awesome. Dr Walker is amazing. Thank you for excellent service.

Highly professional and courteous staff! They were able to see me on short notice. However, I had a simple extraction done and, when it was all said and done, it cost me a whopping $480. Perhaps I was billed incorrectly, but that is on the high side for a simple extraction, compared to what others in the area would charge. I only went here because the dentist I normally use was booked. Other than that, highly professional and friendly.Great if you have a dental emergency and can't get a quick appointment anywhere else.

About Us
How long do dental sealants last?

Dental sealants are a protective coating made out of durable material that can last several years if you consistently practice good oral hygiene. With proper care, they can last anywhere from 5 – 10 years. Regular dental check-ups at Pipe Creek Dental Center will allow Dr. Walker to monitor the condition of your sealants and determine if they need to be replaced.

Can dental sealants be removed?

Dental sealants are designed to provide long-lasting protection to your teeth and are not typically removed. However, if necessary, sealants can be removed by Dr. Walker in Pipe Creek, TX once they become damaged or too worn. This will then allow her to put on a replacement sealant.

Are dental sealants safe?

Yes, dental sealants are considered safe by both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and American Dental Association (ADA). They are made from a minimal amount of bisphenol A (BPA) so they aren't known to cause any health problems. The only possible side effect Pipe Creek, TX patients may experience from a dental sealant would be an allergic reaction, which occurs very rarely.
