Protect Your Smile With Little Work

Your life is busier than ever and finding ways to get things done easily and efficiently are often top priorities. It’s not that you are lazy or that you do not want to give your best, it is that you are stretched thin and anything that makes life less burdensome is often a huge plus. If you often neglect your oral health because you are too tired in the evenings to floss, your schedule is too full and you cancel dental appointments, or life is just overwhelming and you admit that you often forget to even brush your teeth – keep reading.

Dental sealants have been used for decades to protect the back teeth, where cavities most frequently occur, without any effort. This prevention procedure truly offers a huge benefit with no more exertion than you visiting the dentist. Of course, it is still important that you do take care of your smile at home

Dental sealants are painless applications that are placed on the back teeth, the pre-molars and molars, to create a barrier that seals out harm. These back teeth are very rough because they are made up of deep grooves and pits. The pre-molars and molars were designed purposefully to help you chew your foods into small portions for swallowing and digesting, yet they are difficult to clean thoroughly. Every time you eat or drink anything other than water, tiny particles become trapped in the grooves and pits of the back teeth. Even with frequent brushing, some bacteria can become trapped and will begin producing acids to help break the particles down. These acids eat through whatever is in their path, including your tooth enamel; creating cavities and causing decay in their wake.

Dental sealants are plastic coatings that are painted on to the pre-molars and molars after the teeth have been thoroughly cleaned and dried. After application, the sealants are hardened with a special curing light that allows the sealants to bond with the tooth enamel. Once in place, dental sealants can last 2-4 years and provide adequate protection against decay.

At Dental Care Center at Kennestone, we want to help you maintain a healthy smile. Flossing, brushing, and regular dental visits are important to your smile. You can also protect your smile with little work in between visits with dental sealants. Call today to schedule an appointment.

  • I absolutely love this dental experience. I used to dread having to make dental trips but since finding this office 4 years ago that took the dread away. From making the appointment, to visiting with the office staff. It's great. The Hygienist is very friendly. But that Dr. O,
    she is a ray of sunshine. Perfect bedside manner, concerning, caring, helpful, and so very positive. I do not have dental insurance and could go somewhere else that may be a tad cheaper but I wouldn't trade this dental office for the world. They feel more like family. Give them a try you won't regret it!

  • I am very happy I came to this dental office! I tend to avoid going to the dentist because of past experiences, but my visit today was 10/10!! The dental hygienist, Kelly, and Dr. Buffington were so nice and thorough. I highly recommend! So happy I found a good and nice dental office finally!! :)

  • Always a great experience when I come in for cleanings or any work that has to be done. Special thanks to my hygienist Kelli for a good cleaning today and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Buffington is also terrific and very attentive. The entire staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

  • I have been a patient here for many years. I’ve always had positive experiences. I especially like the Dental Hygenist “Callie”. She is just the best, always smiling and cheerful, just what you need at the Dentist. She is very experienced and I’ve learned a lot from her. All the Staff is very nice and polite and Dr Buffington is great also. I’ve had a lot of dental work done by her and never had a problem. She is very gentle and painless too!

  • The dentist, Dr. Buffington, hygienist, and staff were professional and efficient. Dr. Buffington provided an excellent explanation to my question so that I understood the situation. High recommend this dental practice.

  • Dr. Buffington has to be the kindest, most patient dentist in the world. The staff is amazingly attentive, non-judgemental and offers a very comforting experience. I appreciate how patient they are with me, a 44-year old that still cries and would rather give birth (without medication) than have dental work. I hope you catch my drift😉

  • I really like Dr. Buffington. She gave me a plan that gives me hope about a TMJ issue. Everyone on the staff was professional and seemed genuinely caring. I would highly recommend the office.

    It’s a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and they don’t try to sell you on things you don’t need.

  • I highly recommend this dental practice. They took prompt and amazing care of me to address a TMJ episode. Dr. Buffington and all employees I encountered were professional, friendly, caring and knowledgeable. They set me on the path of recovery and have earned my respect and business going forward. How refreshing to engage with a business that truly understands customer service.
