Dental sealant is a plastic coating applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth in order to prevent tooth decay. The sealant adheres to the grooves of the teeth, forming a thin but protective shield over the enamel of each tooth, usually premolars and molars.
Sealants are helpful because, even though brushing and flossing can remove plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth, they can’t always get into all the depressions and grooves of the back teeth. Sealants protect these vulnerable areas from forming decay.
Sealants can protect your teeth from decay for up to 10 years, but need to be checked for chipping at your regular dental appointments.
To schedule an appointment to receive sealants, please call our dental office.
