Dental Sealants

Sealants main goal

Dentists use sealants as a preventive measure to protect your teeth from bacteria that can lead to disease. The deep grooves in your molars assist in breaking down food during chewing. With time, the accumulation of food and bacteria in these grooves can result in tooth decay, also known as cavities. Sealants are applied to these areas to prevent bacteria from reaching them.

What are the benefits of dental sealants?

  • Protection against decay: Dental sealants provide a protective barrier against bacteria and food particles that can cause decay.
  • Easy application: The application of dental sealants is quick, painless, and does not require any drilling or removal of tooth structure.
  • Cost-effective: Dental sealants are a cost-effective way to prevent tooth decay, as they can last for several years and are less expensive than fillings or other restorative procedures.
  • Improved oral health: By protecting teeth from decay, dental sealants can improve overall oral health and prevent the need for more extensive dental treatments in the future.
