Highly effective in preventing decay on the chewing surfaces of your teeth, dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is bonded into the cracks and onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from decay causing material.
Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach.
Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed. They can be placed without any discomfort.
Children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
