Dental Sealants

Dental cavities often begin in the grooves and pits on the biting surfaces of the back teeth where plaque tends to accumulate. A dental sealant acts as a barrier, “sealing off” the tooth from bacteria, food, and sugar, therefore keeping the biting surface of the tooth cavity free.  Sealants are a quick, conservative, painless way to keep teeth healthy by preventing tooth decay, and can last for decades!
