Dental sealants are very effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your back teeth which are utilized the most during chewing. We will use a tooth-coloured acrylic to coat the surface of the tooth. This coating will settle into the grooves of your molars and create a barrier to protect enamel from plaque and other carie-inducing materials such as acids from fruits.
Sealants prevent food and plaque from getting trapped between the hard to reach grooves of your teeth; areas which may be difficult to reach during brushing and flossing.
Applying dental sealant only takes a few minutes, but the benefits last for several years. Anyone with natural adult teeth can have sealants applied to help prevent tooth decay.
