A Dental Sealant is a thin plastic coating that is painted on the chewing surface of a tooth to protect it from decay and normal wear. Usually applied to the molars or premolars, Sealants bond to the natural grooves and depressions of teeth to form a protective shield in places where decay is most commonly found.
Although when you floss and brush you can remove plaque and food particles from the smooth surfaces of teeth, oftentimes the crannies and nooks of your teeth may still contain plaque and food particles. Sealants block food particles and plaque from entering these areas, protecting them from tooth decay.
Dental Sealants have been proven to be cost-efficient and a safe dental procedure for patients in the prevention of cavities. From the time children start getting their permanent teeth and throughout adulthood, we recommend dental sealants to help you maintain your dental health.
