Sealants in Falls Church, VA

Cavities are more likely to develop in the narrow pits and fissures of your teeth because these are the areas your toothbrush can’t reach easily. Robert A. Morabito, DDS protects both children and adults from damaging with sealants. Our dental sealant treatment protects teeth by sealing grooves and creating a smoother surface that is easier to clean.

How Sealants Work to Protect Your Teeth

At Robert A. Morabito, DDS, we use sealants as part of a preventative dentistry treatment in our Falls Church dental office. Kids, whose teeth are especially cavity prone, can benefit from sealants between the ages of 6 and 16. We also provide sealants to younger kids if they have deep fissures that are prone to decay and adults with deep grooves or depressions in their teeth.

Before Dr. Morabito applies the sealant to your teeth, they are thoroughly cleaned and surrounded with cotton to keep the area dry. He then applies a special solution to the teeth to act as a bonding agent. The teeth are rinsed and dried, and then Dr. Morabito paints the sealant material onto to the teeth, carefully covering the deep pits and fissures that are prone to decay.

With proper dental hygiene and regular visits to your Falls Church dentist, your sealants will last between three-to-five years.  Since sealants will only protect your teeth if they are fully intact, it is important to have them checked regularly for cracks or chips in the surface.

Are Sealants Right for You?

No matter how well you care for your teeth, there is a chance of decay in places your toothbrush and floss can’t reach. Sealants are a great way to protect your teeth and keep them healthy and intact for years to come. If you’re wondering if sealants would be a good choice for you or your children, we urge you to give Robert A. Morabito, DDS a call to discuss your options.

Dr. Morabito and your wonderful staff - Thank you so much for your kind, welcoming, and kid-friendly attention you gave me and my sons when we came in for the Harrison's 1st dental checkup. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

The Harrisons

Dr. Morabito is an awesome dentist, a great personality with the hift of humor, he is personable, and amazingly manages to choose the very best people to work for him. They are all excellent and most of all - caring and genuine. And with my dental problems, believe me I have had my share of being treated like a "number." I recently flew back to Falls Church from Kansas City to have him do my implants, because I don't trust anyone else.
