Dental sealants are a preventive treatment designed to protect the hard-to-reach surfaces of your back teeth (molars and premolars) from decay.

These surfaces have deep grooves and pits where food particles and bacteria can accumulate, leading to cavities. Sealants are made from a plastic material that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel. This simple, painless procedure can be completed in a single visit and provides long-lasting protection against decay. Sealants are especially beneficial for children and teenagers who are at higher risk of cavities, but can also be advantageous for adults with no decay or fillings in their molars. By opting for dental sealants, you’re taking a proactive step towards preventing cavities and promoting optimal oral health.
