Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth.  They are highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your children’s permanent teeth because they protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth “sealing” them off from food particles and plaque.

Children do well with having dental sealants placed because each one only takes a few minutes to apply. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing.
