Sealants

Sealants are proven to reduce cavities by up to 70% in children and adolescents. Because of sealants, fluoride, good hygiene, nutrition (including low sugar consumption) and regular dental visits, tooth decay has been dramatically reduced.  Sealants are absolutely wonderful and certainly something you should consider.


The newly erupted immature enamel of teeth is more permeable and therefore more susceptible and less resistant to tooth decay due to the higher organic content of the enamel surface. As the enamel matures, the organic content decreases along with its permeability, the enamel becomes more resistant and in a sense stronger. Until that occurs, it is critical to protect the surfaces of newly erupting teeth to enhance their longevity.

Sealants are a clear or white resin material designed to flow into and seal the deep grooves in the chewing surface of children’s teeth. This helps to prevent invasion by bacteria into these hard to clean areas.  Sealants are inexpensive, painless, and easily applied without anesthesia.
