Sealants are plastic which bonds into the grooves of a tooth. Sealants work to prevent tooth decay and cavity formation on the chewing surface of a tooth.
There are many tiny, deep, and narrow grooves on the chewing surfaces of children’s teeth. Often times, it is very difficult for children to properly clean deep down into these grooves with a toothbrush. When a sealant is applied, the surface of the tooth is made flatter and smoother, eliminating the hard-to-clean grooves. After a sealant is applied, plaque can be removed more effectively and easily. In this way, dental sealants decrease the chance that decay will start.
Typically, a dental sealant placement takes just one visit and is a very easy process. First, the tooth is cleaned, conditioned, and dried. The sealant material is then flowed onto the tooth surface. The dental sealant is hardened quickly with a special blue light. After the appointment, all normal activities can occur.
The life expectancy of tooth sealants can vary. Sealants are considered successful if they remain in place for three to five years; however, sealants can last much longer. Our staff at Burg Children’s Dentistry will check your child’s sealants during each dental visit to determine if repair or reapplication of dental sealants is necessary.
Any tooth with deep, hard to clean grooves can benefit from the application of dental sealants. The most common teeth to be sealed are a child’s back molars. At Burg Children’s Dentistry, the recommendation for dental sealants is considered on a case-by-case basis.
After sealants are applied, it is just as important for your child to brush and floss their teeth. Sealants are only one part in the fight against tooth decay. It is extremely important that your child establishes an at-home dental care routine and has regular professional dental cleanings.
Dental Sealant treatment is quite affordable. The value of protection that dental sealants offer against tooth decay is invaluable. Most dental insurance companies cover sealants. Check with your insurance company about your child’s dental coverage.
For more information on dental sealants, or to schedule an appointment for your child, contact Burg Children’s Dentistry. We have eight convenient locations along the Wasatch Front.

They were so friendly and my daughter loved them! They made sure I understood everything before doing any work. I really felt like they loved my girl and wanted to make her comfortable. I would recommend them to everyone!- Heather H.
Love Burg!! The dentists are fantastic, able to explain exactly what is needed and why. And they talk to my boys, instead of only to me; they include then kids in the decisions. Very patient and friendly. Love the front desk staff, too.- Jessica K.
What a great experience! My son has been terrified of going to the dentist. The staff was so kind and engaging that he didn’t even bat an eye. They were able to get more done with no tears then the past three dental offices we went to.- Sarah P.
We love Burg Children’s Dentistry! The staff is so kind and patient and they are so gentle with the kids. My daughter is four and loves going to the dentist because they make it so fun and comfortable. I’m grateful we live close to such a great dental office!- Claire M.
I love this place, but what is more important is that my daughter loves this place. She looks forward to going to the dentist. I did not grow up with the same experience. I’m confident that she is being taken care of on every visit.- Sara R.
Amazing staff. From the receptionist to the doctor himself. Very patient with my fifteen month old who wouldn’t lay down to me filling out my paperwork with a newborn in tow. Our family will be returning for sure!- Jon & Melissa L.
The staff is so great with my kids. On the way for his visit he says, “I LOVE going to the dentist!” Which is funny considering how much I dread it! Dr Nielsen is so nice and takes the time to explain everything he sees.- Christina T.
The folks at Burg Children’s Dentistry are excellent! Our four year old daughter loves going there and they have set her up to enjoy going to the dentist for years to come! I have recommended them to friends already! Thanks for a great job guys!- Watt C.
