While dentistry has made great strides in being able to treat all kinds of dental issues, every dentist would agree that no treatment or procedure measures up to preventative care and keeping your natural teeth healthy. Brushing and flossing are the basics, but dental sealants can do even more to protect your teeth from cavities, decay and more serious issues.
Dental sealants are an easy but effective preventative treatment that will supplement your daily dental routine to protect and strengthen your natural teeth. All it takes for us is to paint a tooth-colored acrylic coating on the chewing surfaces of your teeth. The coating then seals the hard-to-reach grooves and depressions and creates a barrier that protects your teeth from cavity-causing bacteria.
The application itself only takes a few minutes, but the sealants act as a strong shield that protect your teeth for years to come. It is a preventative treatment for children and adults alike, so make sure to ask us about dental sealants at your next appointment!

I continue to receive excellent dental care and support from the dental group I have used for the past 36 years. I have had 2 dentists retire, and I now live an hour drive away, but I keep coming back for the superb dental care and advice.
This staff of professionals works together beautifully. The tooth cleaning and examination glide from one to the other with no waiting. Angela, the angel who cleans teeth is thorough but gentle. I cannot recommend this group more!
I so appreciate the service I receive when I go to Dr. Lehr's Office for my checkups. I think the practice as a whole is much improved by technology and process improvements.
