Teeth have many pits and crevices along their surface that collect food and bacteria.
For a young person, especially, these areas can be hard to brush and sections can be missed that have trapped food which leads to a cavity and a future filling.
Dental sealants are coatings that are applied by a dentist to the surface of teeth. These coatings are designed to fill these pits and crevices so that food cannot be trapped. This reduces greatly the opportunity for tooth decay and subsequent drilling and filling. The great thing about sealants is that there is no drilling, no needles for anesthesia and are done in a single visit.

Here is what some parents have told us about their experience with us:
The staff and doctors (Carlos Diaz, DDS) were great, they showed knowledge and compassion for their practice. I was scared since it was my first Dentist visit, however, Dr. Diaz made sure that I had no pain by keeping constant communication during the procedure. I recommend Dr. Diaz at Brownsville Family Dentistry to anyone who has not been to the dentist in the past. - Agustin C.

Thursday morning, I had an appointment at 10:00 A.M. Upon entering the office, I was met by one of the secretaries. Immediately a technician called my name and took me to a room where she x-ray my teeth. Afterwards the young doctor came in and checked my teeth and we had a small conversation concerning my health. Afterwards a young lady came in to clean my teeth. Before departing I was given an appointment for Oct. 19.2017. Overall experience was exceptional. - Guadalupe L.
Thank you to all your team this morning for the help and comfort I got! The experience was amazing after all I had gone through at the hospital, may God bless you all! - Idalia R.
