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 that’s painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively seals the deep grooves, while acting as a barrier and protecting sensitive enamel from both plaque and acids.
Dental sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from various food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing alone can't reach. Easy to apply, tooth sealants take only a few minutes to seal. They hold up well under the force of normal chewing, and have been shown to last several years before a reapplication is needed. Both children and adults can benefit from dental sealants in their fight against tooth decay.
