Dental Sealants are highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your back teeth, sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively protects the deep, cavity-prone grooves acting as a barrier, protecting the enamel from plaque and acids.
Dental Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach.
Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
Children and adults alike can greatly benefit from sealants.
