Do your sensitive teeth bother you? Do you often get cavities?

Having sensitive teeth means getting anything from a mild twinge as you bite into a popsicle to experiencing severe pain that can continue for several days. If that describes your dental situation, ask about our protective dental sealant treatments.

Our dental sealants are thin coatings painted on the teeth to protect them from decay and discomfort. This simple, pain-free treatment is great for kids and adults!

Contact us today to schedule your visit with our Erie dental sealant dentist and let’s identify the best treatment for you.

Signs you may benefit from a dental sealant treatment:


We often recommend dental sealants for those who:


Have a long history of tooth decay


Have extreme tooth sensitivity


Suffer from dry mouth


Have difficulty reaching/cleaning back teeth

Remember — sealants are not a replacement for proper oral hygiene habits!

How dental sealants work

What are dental sealants?

A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating that gets painted over the chewing surfaces of your teeth to prevent tooth decay. Once applied, the sealant quickly covers and bonds with the grooves of the teeth, hardening into a protective shell around the enamel of each tooth. This helps to keep discomfort at bay for your sensitive teeth. It also protects the teeth from cavities and decay.

How are dental sealants applied?

Dental sealants are applied in a simple and pain-free process. It takes only a few minutes to seal each tooth after it’s thoroughly cleaned and dried. After being painted onto your teeth, the sealant bonds directly to the layer of enamel on your teeth, hardening into place. That’s it!

What do dental sealants do?

As the name suggests, dental sealants “seal” your teeth from anything that irritates or damages or sensitive teeth, keeping it strong and healthy. Sealants protect hard-to-clean spots, such as the nooks and crannies between the back molars, from plaque and decay.

What makes teeth sensitive?

Sensitive teeth can be caused by a variety of situations and triggers. When the outer protective layer of enamel around the tooth wears down through teeth grinding, overexposure to acids, or hard brushing, your teeth may become more sensitive. Other causes of sensitive teeth include gum recession, tooth decay, or chipped teeth.

Are sensitive teeth a serious problem?

Many people (almost 75%) suffer from some level of tooth sensitivity. Often, this is due to acid or temperature damage (where the teeth are exposed to extreme heat or cold). This is not necessarily a problem in itself, and may just require time and proper dental hygiene to heal from. However, tooth sensitivity can be caused by more serious issues, such as an exposed tooth root or undiscovered cavities. It is always a good idea to let us know about your sensitive teeth so we can help you find the best solution.

There are a number of things you can do to prevent decay, cavities, sensitivity, and other problems:


  • Brushing and flossing daily (pay special attention to your hard-to-clean back teeth!)
  • Using a soft-bristled brush
  • Brushing gently
  • Avoiding teeth grinding
  • Cutting down on acidic foods and sugary drinks
