Dental Sealants FAQ

General Dentistry Napa

Napa dentist Dr. Hoey is dedicated to providing the most state-of-the-art services to all patients and Dental Sealants are one of the many dental treatments he offers that is customized to improve your oral health.

Dental Sealants are easily applied in only a few minutes for each tooth and are highly effective in preventing cavities and maintaining overall oral wellness.

This noninvasive treatment is not only a great way to prevent tooth decay, it is also pain free both for you and your pocket book! The minimal cost of a dental sealant certainly outweighs the cost of a cavity.

A dental sealant is a simple pain free procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively protects the deep, cavity-prone grooves acting as a barrier, protecting the enamel from plaque and acids.

Napa dentist Dr. Hoey ensures your dental sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.

At your next routine hygiene appointment you will receive a thorough dental examinations and Napa dentist Dr. Hoey can determine if you are good candidate for dental sealants.
