Dental sealants prevent decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth.
This is a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored resin coating is painted onto the surface of the tooth, effectively creating a protective barrier.
The Protection of Sealants
Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from acid, food particles, and plaque that brushing and flossing cannot reach.
Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes for 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 benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
