Dental Sealants

What Are Dental Sealants?

A sealant is a thin, resin base material applied to the chewing surface of teeth with deep grooves which are hard to clean and are very susceptible to decay. A sealant protects the tooth by sealing deep grooves, creating a smooth, easy to clean surface.

Who Can Benefit from Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are popular for children who may not always brush as thoroughly as they should. Adults, too, can benefit from dental sealants.

Your Dentist Will Check Dental Sealants Regularly

Dental sealants are most effective in the first few years after application. Your dentist will monitor them for effectiveness as part of your routine dental examinations.
