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

Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can't reach.

Sealants are easy to apply and it only takes a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before they need to be reapplied.

Both children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
