Sealants are highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth. A tooth-colored acrylic coating is bonded onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier, and protects the enamel from plaque and acids.
Easy to apply, it takes only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants usually hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
Children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
