Sealants play a very important part in the prevention of dental decay in adults, teens and children. A sealant is a very thin coating applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth with any deep groves on them. These teeth are extremely difficult to keep clean and free of decay.
The application of a sealant will create a smoother, easier to clean tooth surface thus allowing for better, more effective cleaning and protecting the teeth against decay. During regular check-ups the need for this treatment can be determined. If such a need is indicated, this inexpensive treatment takes little time, is painless and will provide you with important protection against tooth decay and it’s harmful effects on your teeth.
