At Van Mills Dental, we worked hard to make an environment that is welcoming and supportive of children. This includes creating a play area for children to hang out, engage in drawing and reading. We provide dentistry in a positive, relaxed and friendly environment and engage the children in an interactive approach to learning; teaching them techniques for a lifetime of good oral health. We also provide soft-touch cleanings and preventive sealants.
Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach.
Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
Children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
