Safeguard Your Molars & Premolars With Dental Sealants
Thin, plastic protective shields that are applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars, dental sealants provide a hard, invisible barrier that helps shield teeth from plaque buildup and tooth decay.

How are dental sealants placed?
After your teeth are cleaned and dried, our dentist will apply a solution to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth to help roughen them up. This helps ensure a proper bond between the sealant and tooth enamel. Next, sealant will be applied to each tooth surface with a small brush or applicator. After it has been applied, we’ll use a special curing light to harden the sealant in place.
What are the benefits of dental sealants?
By providing a barrier against plaque, acids, and bacteria that cause tooth decay, sealants protect teeth in the short and long term. What’s more, they have the ability to last for up to 10 years when cared for diligently, meaning they also help patients save money by minimizing the need for more complex services.
Who is a candidate for dental sealants?
Dental sealants are typically recommended for children and teenagers, and especially those who have a higher risk of tooth decay. Adults can also benefit from sealants if they are prone to cavities or have deep grooves in their teeth.
