What it is.
Sealants are a protective material added to the grooves of the teeth.
Why we do it.
Chewing surfaces of the back teeth can be very difficult f or children to keep clean. And they are most prone to cavities.
What to expect.
Sealant material is applied to the back teeth, molar and premolars. It is a painless, simple procedure that can best be explained as painting on a Superman or Wonder Woman shield. Sealants can last for several years but should be checked during regular preventive care visits.
