Both children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
Sealants are a very simple procedure. They are highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth. The sealant procedure simply involves coating the surface of the teeth with a tooth-colored acrylic. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves acting as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
Sealants protect the deep depressions and grooves of your teeth which are the areas that are highly susceptible to plaque entrapment and subsequent decay.
Easy to apply (and requires no numbing up), sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last many years before a reapplication is needed.
