Sealants


sealants Sealants are highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your child's chewing teeth. Sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic "coating" is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively "seals" the deep grooves and essentially acts as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids.

In addition, sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing cannot reach. Sealants are easy to apply and take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants usually hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last many years before a reapplication is necessary.

Although sealants can be applied on adults, they are most commonly used on children, and ideally we place them as soon as the permanent molar teeth erupt into place. In specific cases, we will also use them on bicuspid teeth or in deep pits on the tongue or cheek sides of back or front teeth.
