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.
Dental Sealants can be particularly effective on the molars and premolars of children between the ages of 6 and 14. Dental sealants work to prevent decay by minimizing the tiny spaces and crevices where food particles can get stuck in the hard-to-reach rear teeth.

Easy to apply, dental sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. First a liquid adhesive is applied to the tooth. Next, the sealant is brushed onto the biting surface. These two liquids combine to form a clear, tough layer on your teeth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed. Both children and adults can benefit from dental sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
