Dental sealants are highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth.
Dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
Dental sealants are easy to apply and only require a few minutes to seal each tooth. Once applied, sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
