Sealants

Sealants are barriers that prevent cavities!

About

Brushing and flossing help to remove food and plaque from the surfaces of your teeth, but bristles can’t reach the bottom of your teeth depressions and grooves. Dental sealants are used as a barrier to prevent cavities in vulnerable areas. They are made out of a plastic material and are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the pre-molars and molars (back teeth) where decay most often occurs.

Key Benefits:  

  • Prevents cavities
  • Saves future cost of dental care

Additional information: Sealants are applied easily by painting the plastic material onto the tooth’s enamel, where it bonds to the tooth and hardens. As long as the sealant is present, the tooth surface is protected from any decay.
