Quality Dental Care is conveniently located in St. Johns and is dedicated to providing high-quality, comprehensive dental services to this community. We specialize in all aspects of oral health care for all ages, including pediatric dentistry. That’s why we offer sealants as a preventive option for our young patients while their smiles are developing.

Sealants protect the areas of the mouth where a cavity is most likely to develop - the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. By creating a thin “shield,” the sealant covers these rough areas that often have many crevices where food can hide and cause tooth decay. The bristles on a toothbrush, especially with the young, inexperienced brusher, don’t always clear away the food particles from these hard-to-reach areas, creating the perfect conditions for tooth decay. Additionally, young teeth that are newly-erupted and not fully-developed are more susceptible to decay than adult teeth.

Dental sealants are made of plastic resin that creates a thin, invisible coating that smoothes the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, protecting them from and making them resistant to decay. Applying sealants is a painless procedure that can be done in one visit and is typically covered by dental insurance. A solution is applied to the clean, dry tooth and then hardened usually with the help of a curing light. Sealants have an estimated ten-year life in the mouth of your child if cared for properly. The benefits can be incredible with an average reduction in decay of 70 percent.

When your young one’s smile is developing, it’s important to develop good oral hygiene habits, maintain a schedule of routine checkups, and explore any preventive treatments that might protect their delicate teeth. Quality Dental Care specializes in all aspects of pediatric dental care including preventive options such as sealants. Be sure to schedule a routine exam for your younger family members today at (904) 364-0333.

"Found Dr. Shiyab on line and decided randomly to give him a call since I had a 45 year old post in a front tooth come loose. Luck for me I called Dr. Shiyab since he did an excellent job. Dr. Shiyab cares for his patients as well as his staff does, and makes sure that the experience is pain free and comfortable. He knows his business and knows what it takes to make a patient happy and comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Shiyab. I will be referring all of my friends and family to this excellent dentist."
