Dental Sealants

Sealants are a proactive step to keeping your teeth healthy and decay-free. At Johansen Dental, we apply a protective coating that seals the grooves and depressions in your teeth, especially the molars, which are prone to cavities. This quick and painless procedure can significantly reduce the risk of decay and save you from future dental procedures.

FAQs

  • How do dental fillings for cavities work?

    The dentist removes the decayed tooth material and cleans the affected area. The cleaned-out cavity is then filled. This treatment restores the tooth’s shape and prevents further decay by closing off spaces where bacteria can enter.

  • What types of fillings are there?

    The extent and location of the damage and insurance coverage determine the materials used to fill the cavity. At Johansen Dental, we offer a variety of filling materials. These include:

    Composite Resins: Tooth-colored fillings that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a more aesthetic solution.

    Amalgam: A durable and cost-effective material made from a combination of metals.

    Gold: A less common but highly effective option known for durability and efficiency.

  • Is tooth sensitivity after a filling normal?

    Yes, experiencing tooth sensitivity following a filling is normal and typically temporary. The sensitivity usually occurs due to nerve inflammation inside the tooth after the treatment. It should subside within a few days to a week. However, if the sensitivity persists or worsens, it’s crucial to contact us for a follow-up visit.
