Sealants

Dental sealants are a great way to protect your teeth from tooth decay.  Generally sealants are used with children and teens, but adults can benefit too.  Sealants are a thin plastic coating, usually white in appearance, that are applied to the chewing or biting surface of permanant back teeth to protect against tooth decay.  Sealants can last several years and can be reapplied if needed.

Applying sealants is an easy process that requires no drilling.  The teeth are cleaned and a special gel is applied to the tooth for several seconds.  The gel is then rinsed off and the tooth is dried.  The sealant is then placed in the grooves of the tooth and a special light is used to harden the sealant.  

You can find more information about dental sealants on our Preventive Dental Services page.  Let us know if you have any questions or concerns about dental sealants!
