What are Dental Sealants?

What are Dental Sealants?

A sealant is a safe, plastic coating that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to keep cavity causing germs out by covering up their tiny hiding places.

Who can benefit from Sealants?

Children are much more susceptible to tooth decay then adults. Sealants should be applied to the permanent teeth as they erupt to prevent decay.

Does it hurt and how long will it last?

Sealing teeth is easy, painless and usually only takes about a minute for each tooth. There are no shots in the procedure.  As long as the sealant remains intact, the sealed tooth surface will be protected from decay.   The sealant we have chosen has very high success rate and could last for years.
