Dental Sealants

What are Dental Sealants?

  • Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth.
  • This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
  • 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 can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
