Sealants
A sealant is a preventive dental treatment our dentist may recommend to protect your teeth from decay. A dental sealant is made of a clear or tooth-colored resin material that is painted onto the chewing surface of the tooth. The sealant prevents decay and cavities by blocking out harmful bacteria and food debris. The dental sealant also smooths over the natural pits and grooves of the tooth surface, making it easier to effectively clean your teeth with normal brushing.

Our dentist recommends dental sealants most often for children as soon as their permanent molars come in, which is usually between the ages of 6 and 12. We may also recommend dental sealants for adult patients whose teeth are prone to decay or for teeth that have not restored or previously suffered from decay. We can apply dental sealants in just one short, comfortable appointment. Sealants can be a powerful tool in preventing decay and protecting the health of your smile. We encourage you to call our office if you want to learn more about dental sealants and how they can keep your smile healthy.
