Dental sealants are very effective when it comes to preventing decay on the biting surface of your teeth. They are a routine procedure where a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the tooth surface. This successfully “seals” the grooves, creating a barrier that protects your enamel from plaque and harmful acids.
Sealants provide protection from plaque especially to the areas of your teeth where your regular toothbrush and dental floss cannot reach.
Dental sealants can be easily applied and require just a few minutes to seal your tooth.
They can withstand your normal chewing force and can last for several years before needing reapplication.
They are very beneficial for both children and adults and can protect their teeth against tooth decay.
