Sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic "coating" is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This process is very effective in preventing decay on your teeths biting surfaces.
Sealants seal and protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can't reach.
Sealants are easy to apply. In fact it takes only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before you need a reapplication.
