Dental Sealant Treatment
Many people have deep pits and grooves in their teeth where bacteria and food particles can hide and cause decay. Children with poor brushing habits may also develop decay on hard-to-reach molars.
Applying a dental sealant is a highly effective way to prevent decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth.
It is a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored coating is painted onto the surface of the tooth. After about 15 seconds, we thoroughly rinse the solution, dry the surface, coat your teeth with the sealant, and harden it with a curing light. The entire procedure takes about 10 to 45 minutes, depending on the number of teeth to seal.
Sealants hold up well under the force of regular chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.

- Protect teeth from food particles
