Dental sealants are a type of special plastic coating that act as a barrier, protecting cavity-prone areas. Sealing a tooth is fast and easy. They are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth and are sometimes used to cover deep pits and grooves in other teeth.
As long as the sealant remains intact, the tooth surface will be protected from decay. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing but sometimes a reapplication is needed.
Talk to us about sealants! We think they are awesome! Sealants are added protection against decay, which is especially helpful for children and teens.
But remember: Just because you have sealants doesn’t mean you don’t have to brush and clean between your teeth every day.
