Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a simple procedure shown to be highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of teeth. Dental sealants are easy to apply and take only a few minutes per tooth. A plastic material is applied onto the tooth enamel, bonding to the tooth and hardening to create a barrier that “seals out” plaque, food, and acids. Beneficial for both children and adults, sealants can remain effective for several years before reapplication is needed.
