Dental sealants are a safe, painless way to protect your teeth from decay. They are protective plastic coatings that are applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth.
The process is straightforward and usually takes only a few minutes for each tooth. The tooth is thoroughly cleaned and prepared with a special solution. The liquid sealant is then applied and allowed to set. It then forms a hard shield that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing cavities. Sealants are advised on kids, however, we suggest sealants on adult teeth as well to prevent cavities. Call us today to schedule an appointment!
