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.
