Dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This non- invasive treatment has been proven to be highly effective in preventing tooth caries.
Dental sealants act as a barrier by protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
Dental sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach.
Dental sealants take only a few minutes and can hold up well under the force of normal chewing lasting several years before they may need to be re-applied.
Children and adults can benefit from dental sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
