Sealants are an excellent treatment in the prevention of cavities. It is a plastic material which “seals” or fills in the grooves and crevices on the chewing surface of the teeth. This prevents plaque and food from getting caught in the teeth, causing cavities.
Sealant application is fast and comfortable. No drilling is required. The dentist will clean and dry the tooth, flow the sealant material on the tooth, and dry it with a special light.
With proper brushing and care, sealants last up to five years where they may be applied again.
