Teeth Sealants

Dental Sealants are very effective in protecting the teeth chewing surfaces from food particles and germs that cause tooth decay.

Effective for both children and adults, sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic coating is painted onto the grooves on the tooth surface, effectively sealing the grooves and acting as a barrier to protect the enamel from plaque and acids, especially in places that brushing and flossing can’t reach.

The process is short, sealants take only a few minutes to apply and set in one minute to seal each tooth. Sealants are strong, holding up well under normal chewing, and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
