Dental Sealants in Gillette, WY

Although most parents do a good job feeding their children healthy foods, they cannot control what they eat away from home. When they visit their grandparents, stay overnight with a friend, or are at school, they may get more than their fair share of soda, candy, and sugar-laden treats. To help protect their teeth against decay, dentists can put dental sealants on children’s teeth.


After Dr. Erickson examines your child’s teeth, he may suggest adding a sealant to them as a way to prevent cavities. Despite good dental habits, the back teeth have many crevices where food can get caught and breakdown, causing plaque and tooth decay. Also common in adults too!

A sealant is a treatment that our trained staff will brush on your back teeth. As it cools and begins to harden, it forms a thin layer of plastic-like material over the surfaces of the teeth. We will help the material harden with a curing light so that it stays intact when eating and chewing food.


A dental sealant can last up to 10 years. If at any time a sealant becomes damaged or wears down, sealants can be re-done or replaced. Although most insurances won’t cover a dental sealant for adults, they’re highly recommended in some cases.


Dental sealants are very durable. You can brush your teeth as you would normally without worrying that a toothbrush can damage the protective layer on your teeth. Also, you can floss between teeth and use mouthwash without damaging it.

Sealants are not only good for children, but adults as well. Sealants can help protect teeth and keep them free from decay.
