Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach.
Dental sealants are a simple, highly effective procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic coating is painted onto the biting surface of the tooth. This effectively seals the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids. Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to seal each molar. Sealants hold up well under the force f normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed. Children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
