With arrival of the new year, it is time to start thinking about the steps you want to take to ensure your smile will thrive this year and last for many more years in the future. If you are interested in receiving a highly effective treatment for cavity prevention, we invite you to consider the benefits of dental sealants. When applied to your back teeth, dental sealants can help prevent tooth decay and keep your tooth enamel safe from dental erosion.

Dental sealants are beneficial for patients who are interested in protecting hard-to-clean teeth harmful food and drinks. While acids from food can penetrate tooth enamel, they have a difficult time drilling through dental sealants. Furthermore, the clear material of dental sealants enables your natural smile to continue to shine.

Dental sealants are applied as a thin shell to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth to prevent harmful conditions such as tooth decay, and their tremendous durability enables them to effectively protect the tooth enamel for as much as 10 years.

Dental sealants can decrease your chances of cavities up to 80% and can help children reduce their risk of cavities by as much as 3 times. Dental sealants are safe for all patient types and can benefit a child as soon as they receive their first set of molars.
