While proper brushing and flossing are the best tools for preventing cavities and tooth decay, dental sealants can provide additional protection when necessary.

What’s a dental sealant?

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that can be applied to the surface of the premolars and molars to help prevent the formation of cavities.

Why are sealants necessary?

Molars and premolars often have deep pits and fissures on their biting surfaces making them most vulnerable to tooth decay. Dental sealants are a safe and painless way of providing additional protection for these teeth.

How are sealants applied?

It is a simple, pain-free process in which we apply a plastic coating onto your teeth. The process does not take long and does not require any freezing.
