At Sims Dentistry of Louisville, we believe that prevention is an important factor in achieving and maintaining optimal oral health. For this reason, we recommend dental sealants in Louisville for most of our patients. Have you ever looked at the chewing surfaces of your teeth? You likely noticed pits, grooves, and depressions all over your teeth. These areas of teeth are actually the perfect place for debris, bacteria and even plaque to get trapped and thrive. Dental sealants are a quick, affordable and comfortable way to provide your smile with additional protection from bacteria and plaque.
At Sims Dentistry of Louisville we often recommend Louisville dental sealants following a routine dental examination and cleaning. Dental sealants are made from safe, healthy and effective BPA-free plastic. The entire process for dental sealants takes only minutes and requires no local anesthetic or any numbing.

Once dried, dental sealants harden into a barrier, protecting teeth from the harm caused by bacteria, acid, plaque and even tarter. This barrier also seals these pits, grooves, and depressions, making it easier for patients to properly brush their teeth.
