Without exception, next to in-office fluoride treatments, Dental Sealants represent the best value modern preventative dentistry has to offer. Sealants are “painted” on the biting surfaces to prevent decay. Sealants applied early, and kept in place, prevent tooth decay. Period.

Because decay on back teeth commonly begins in the grooves, pits, and fissures on the chewing surfaces of teeth, Sealants are “painted” on those biting surfaces and protect against decay.

Of course Sealants don’t eliminate all cavities, so it’s important to brush, floss, and see your Hygienist regularly to prevent decay on the sides and between teeth.
