We are here to tell you about sealants, an easy and affordable way to help prevent tooth decay. We know that your children’s dental health is a high priority in your family, and sealants are an excellent defense against cavities for most children.
A sealant is a clear or white material that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where decay occurs most often. The sealant acts as a barrier that keeps out plaque and food and decreases the risk of tooth decay. Sealants are easy to apply. Each tooth requires only a few minutes for application.
Properly applied and maintained sealants are very effective in preventing pit and fissure decay. Applying sealants can save both time and money. More importantly, your child may avoid the discomfort and anxiety associated with more invasive dental treatment.
