At the foundation of any excellent dental care are routine cleanings, maintenance, and advanced diagnostics. Dr. Johnson and his team in Vacaville offer customized cleanings based on the health of your gums and bones (periodontal health). Dr. Johnson may utilize prescription mouth rinses along with medicated gels for problem areas, if necessary. Advanced equipment is often used to make the procedure more comfortable and effective as well.

Dental Sealants

Dr. Johnson’s dental team in Vacaville, CA offers dental sealants

Dental sealants have long been regarded as highly effective in protecting the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth from decay. Sealants are a quick and simple procedure in which a coating is “painted” onto the surface of the tooth. Dental sealants effectively “seal” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting your teeth from acids and plaque, which are the major causes for cavities and unhealthy teeth.

Sealants protect the deep grooves of your teeth from built up food particles and plaque that flossing and brushing can’t reach or often miss.

Dental sealants are easy to apply.  It only takes a few minutes to seal each tooth! Your sealants will hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before any reapplication is needed.

Kids and adults can benefit from sealants as a form of prevention dentistry
