Dental sealants are an effective preventive dental procedure used to protect teeth from cavities and decay. They are a coating painted on the chewing surface to protect teeth from decay. Sealants are most often used in children, but adults can benefit from dental sealants too. This is especially true if they suffer from pits or fissures as they create hard-to-brush areas.
The application of dental sealants is quick and completely non-invasive. Sealants can be applied in just one visit.
Sealants act as a barrier to protect enamel from outside factors such as plaques and acids. Sealants have proven to be very durable.
