A dental sealant is a thin, tooth-colored barrier placed on the chewing surface of a tooth to prevent cavities and decay. When properly applied, your sealants will repel:

  • Acids
  • Sugars
  • Bacteria
  • Food debris

Sealants are often placed on the molars to prevent bacteria from dwelling in their deep pits and grooves.
