Sealants are a great way to protect against tooth decay and cavities on your back teeth (molars). These are the teeth that are most vulnerable to cavities and decay because they are used in the chewing process, and are the most difficult to reach and clean. Molars first come in at around 5-7 years of age, with a second set coming in between the ages of 11-14. It is best to have a sealant placed when the molars first come in to ensure they are protected early.
To place a sealant an adhesive is first applied to the teeth. The sealant is then placed over the adhesive as a liquid, as if it is painted right onto the tooth. The liquid then hardens and creates a barrier between your tooth and any plaque, food particles, and bacteria. Sealants last for about a few years and can be reapplied if necessary.

Carolyn was missing her canines for most of her life. We placed two implants with crowns, and two veneers. The result looks very natural!

Chris had visible decay on his front teeth and his lower back teeth were in bad shape. We placed three dental implants in the back and fixed his smile with bonding and white filling.

Dr. Walton and his team are so wonderful! They are always in high spirits and make sure you are satisfied with their results. I have been going to Dr. Walton for many years and along with routine dental care, he also handled my orthodontia. He and his staff are very knowledgeable and make sure you understand every procedure, every step of the way. I couldn’t be happier that I happened upon his practice when I moved to Greenwood.Abrianne D.
