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