Protect your smile with dental sealants! Dr. Robert Galliani and Dr. Larry Mulvaney offer dental sealants to help keep your teeth free from cavities and other dental problems. Sealants are a type of preventive care, and are a powerful tool in preventing cavities and helping to keep your smile healthy and free from problems. Sealants are most frequently provided for children after their permanent teeth begin to come in (between the ages of six and 12). We may also recommend dental sealants for adults whose teeth are at greater risk of developing tooth decay and need more protection than that offered by regular dental hygiene at home.

Dental sealants are a protective coating made form a clear or tooth-colored resin material. This resin is painted onto the surface of the tooth, forming a smooth barrier across the natural pits and grooves of the tooth to protect it, literally “sealing out” decay-causing bacteria, plaque and food debris. This smooth surface also makes it easier for you to clean your teeth with normal brushing. Sealants can be applied in just a few minutes as part of your regular dental visits.

We invite you to call Galliani, Mulvaney and Associates at (847) 282-4955 to learn more about dental sealants in Deerfield, Illinois, and schedule your appointment with one of our caring dentists.
