Dental Sealants

When we eat foods that are starchy or sugary, our oral bacteria convert the sugars into acid. This acid then can attack the enamel of the teeth making them weaker and more prone to decay. One of the most common spots for decay is the chewing surface of the back teeth. These surfaces have grooves and depressions on them. These indentations capture food particles and bacteria and are a breeding ground for decay to grow. The indentations are particularly difficult to clean with regular brushing. At the office of Smile Matters Inc., we provide a treatment that can help to prevent this problem in the form of dental sealants for children and adults.

A dental sealant is a thin coating of plastic material painted on the grooves and fissures in the back teeth in order to smooth out the surface and prevent any food or bacteria from sticking there. The application of sealants is fast and painless and can be completed at the same time as a regular checkup. The sealant is painted on the tooth’s surface after roughening it with an etching solution. A special dental curing light may be used to help to dry the sealant. Once we’ve confirmed that your bite is normal, and all the indentations on your tooth have been sealed, the process is complete.

If you would like more information about sealants for you or your child, contact Smile Matters Inc. at (206) 201-0656. Our practice is located at 509 Olive Way, Suite 1033, Seattle, WA 98101.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Q is fantastic. She is such a calm person and explains things in a way you understand. She was very kind and informative. I had a root canal done and she explained the procedure well and exactly what was to be expected. Her office staff are very professional and friendly. I will absolutely keep coming here."

"Beautiful kind people with affordable prices. My lumineer broke and the dentist was able to fix it. Excellent work. Then I went back for a cleaning and it was fantastic and my teeth felt awesome. Thank you to the receptionist as well who was very kind"

Jane R.

"I love Smile Matters! The office has personality and warmth, much of which is brought by the love staff and Dr. Quaidoo. A refreshingly female lead office with highly skilled and easy going staff. You won't be talked into anything here and they want to find a way to get you the care you need. In a medical field where Groupon deals can send patients seeking a deal every time they need a cleaning I am proud to settle down here and call this place my dental home!"
