Dental sealants are one of the most highly effective methods of preventing tooth decay. Dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic coating is painted onto the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, effectively sealing the deep grooves, protecting the enamel from both plaque and acids.
While brushing is an effective way to prevent tooth decay, cleaning the deep grooves of your molars is difficult. Sealants protect the surfaces that brushing and flossing can’t reach.
Both children and adults can benefit from sealants. The procedure is simple, taking only a few minutes per tooth. Sealants can withstand the force of normal chewing and can last several years.
