Dental sealants are a very effective way to prevent cavities on the biting surfaces of the chewing teeth and are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is applied to the surface of the tooth. This coating effectively protects the deep grooves of the tooth, sealing and protecting enamel from cavity-causing acids and plaque.

Sealants protect the grooves and crevices of the tooth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing often miss. Sealants are easy to apply and only take a few minutes to seal each tooth. Kids and adults benefit from sealants as a preventative treatment against cavities.

When you buy a new phone, most people purchase a screen protector to keep that phone from becoming damaged or destroyed. Sealants offer similar protection for your irreplaceable tooth structure.
