Embrace the Benefits of Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars to shield them from decay. Composed of safe, plastic materials, sealants are typically painlessly applied in a quick procedure. They create a barrier that prevents food particles and bacteria from settling into the deep grooves and fissures of teeth, where brushing and flossing may not reach effectively. By forming this protective shield, dental sealants play a crucial role in reducing the risk of cavities and maintaining optimal oral health, particularly in children and adolescents who may have difficulty with thorough oral hygiene practices.
