You may be a gold medal champion when it comes to brushing, but sometimes the grooves in your molars are no match for plaque. This is one reason why we suggest dental sealants.
What Are Sealants?
Dental sealants are a clear or white plastic that are painted onto the grooves of the biting surfaces of your back teeth to protect them from the destructive effects of plaque. They are necessary to prevent plaque and food particles from collecting in the crevices of your molars and cause tooth decay.
How Are They Placed?
The sealant application process is simple, painless, and fast. First, we thoroughly clean and dry your teeth then apply a conditioning solution. Next we “paint” the sealant material into the grooves of your teeth. After your sealants harden, you are free to go and enjoy the extra protection they offer against cavities.
