Sealants



                    Sealants are protective and aesthetic. Sealants are cost effective.

                    They look great and protect the teeth for a cost less than some fillings.

                    Sealants are great options for all patients, especially

                    children. While all data suggest that children have  sealants for 

                    “Caries Prevention” we are seeing trend whereas adult are

                    requesting  this procedure. This is used to fill in narrow grooves in

                    a tooth that cannot be adequately cleaned by brushing. In some

                    cases, the tooth structure has fine grooves or pits which

                    accumulate plaque, not because the person doesn't brush, but

                    because they're too narrow to allow even one bristle into them.

                    These will develop cavities over time, and you don't want that. So

                    the dentist will brush on a coating that seals the grooves and pits,

                    making it possible to brush off all the plaque and keep your teeth

                    healthy.
