Protecting teeth from decay

These thin, protective coatings quickly bond to the depressions and grooves of teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel to prevent tooth decay.

What you need to know about Sealants

Who should get dental sealants?

Because of the likelihood of developing decay in the depressions and grooves of the premolars and molars, children and teenagers are candidates for dental sealants. However, adults without decay or fillings in their molars can also benefit from sealants.

How long do dental sealants last?

Dental sealants can protect teeth from decay for up to 10 years, but they need to be checked for chipping or wearing at regular dental check-ups. Your dentist can replace sealants as necessary.

Are there any side effects? What is the recovery process for a tooth extraction?

With the exception of an allergy that may exist, there are no known side effects from dental sealants.
