Dental Sealants are defensive coverings largely made of plastic that are used to wrap the chewing surface of teeth, mainly the molars and pre-molars. The purpose is to stop tooth decay.
Sealants are easy to apply. A dentist will just spread the sealant over the chewing area of your tooth as it hardens, it will close all the spaces and depressions on the surface of the tooth. This provides a perfect refined surface which is simple to brush and is saved from decay. They last many years, but still need re-application from time to time.
Some of the benefits to dental sealants are:
- Sealants are helpful for children, it helps reduce the amount of potential cavities
- Provides smoother teeth areas to brush
- Pain-free and easy procedure
