Sealants

Sealants are often recommended for children and teenagers, they can provide long-lasting protection for adults as well. A clear resin is applied to the chewing surfaces of the teeth, sealants serve as a shield by preventing food particles and acids from finding their way into the small crevices where decay typically starts.

The application of a sealant is recommended when a patient has deep grooves in their teeth. These deep grooves can lead to tooth decay because the toothbrush bristles are too thick to get in and clean the grooves. As a result, bacteria stays and destroys the tooth enamel causing a cavity.

Applying a sealant is a painless procedure that does not require any anesthetics. It is an inexpensive, preventative procedure that can be performed by the dentist, hygienist or expanded duties assistant.
