Sealant

Dental sealants are thin, plastic films that are applied to the chewing surface of the back teeth (premolars and molars).

Tooth Protection

Sealants work by putting a protective “sealing” over the depressions and grooves of your teeth where food and plaque can collect. It can be hard to reach these areas with brushing and flossing alone, so the sealant acts as an extra safeguard against decay.

Sealant Application

Sealants are fast and easy for the dentist to apply, with it only taking a couple of minutes to seal each tooth. The sealant is “painted” onto the tooth where it then bonds, hardens, and finally acts as a barrier against plaque, foods, and acids. They are highly durable and can last several years under the force of normal chewing. The dentist will monitor the condition of your sealants during your regular checkups and reapply them when needed.

Who Needs Sealants?

Dental sealants are recommended for children and teenagers, since pit and fissure decay often begins early in life. Sealants are also useful for adults, as they provide another valuable defense in a cavity prevention program.
