Have you heard of dental sealants? If you are concerned about protecting your back teeth from harmful acids and cavities, dental sealants may be just what you need. We are pleased to offer dental sealants, as well as provide further information on what they can do for your smile.

In essence, dental sealants are a clear protective coating painted onto the chewing surfaces of your molars and premolars to block out tooth decay. These surfaces in your mouth are often very rough and pitted with deep contours that are welcome the development of tooth decay. These deep contours are also harder to clean and can trap bacteria.

Dental sealants, according to the American Dental Association, can reduce the likelihood of tooth decay up to 80 percent. Children especially can benefit from dental sealants because the sealants help their dental health remain stable while their smiles develop, but dental sealants can also assist adult patients in keeping their teeth healthy.
