Sealing the grooves of the teeth are a great way to decrease the risk of getting cavities.

Sealants are also a great way of protecting hard to reach teeth that are not always brushed properly. In addition, your child does not need to be numb when doing the filling and it is often completed after a cleaning.

What are Dental Sealants?

Sealants are a non-invasive procedure where a special coating of white colored resin is placed on the chewing surfaces of teeth, which are at high risk for food impaction and decay.

The application of dental sealants is an ideal procedure for preserving your child’s teeth. For the most part, sealants are colorless or slightly tinted to match the patient’s natural tooth color, therefore, it is not easily seen when the patient smiles, talks, or laughs.

Do Sealants Have To Be Redone?

Often times, the chewing surfaces of molars are worn away and the sealants have to be replaced. Brushing properly can help preserve the sealants for a longer period of time. However, sealants are typically reapplied once every three years.
