Dental Sealants

There are many grooves, pits and fissures on the chewing surfaces of permanent teeth. Brush bristles ordinarily cannot go onto the depths of these surface irregularities and therefore cannot clean them properly.

Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored material “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This can be most effectively done in children when there are newly erupted caries-free teeth.

This effectively “seals” the deep grooves where decay is most likely to start.

Sealants are, without a doubt, one of the finest, preventive services that we can provide our young patients. In this process, the grooves in the teeth are sealed by a thin but hard plastic resin coating that effectively decreases the potential for tooth decay as long as they are maintained. Sealants are “painted” on the tooth with a soft brush after etching. They bond to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth thereby sealing the deep pits and fissures of the chewing surfaces (where tooth brushes cannot clean)
