Dental Sealants

Tooth Sealants New York | Prevent tooth Decay

Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth.

This is a much quicker, easier, and relatively cheaper option as when compared to other alternatives like root canals, etc. for preventing cavities.  Dental sealants effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.

Dental sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach.

Easy to apply, dental sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.

Children and adults can benefit from dental sealants in the fight against tooth decay. 

The ADA – American Dental Association – endorses that children get dental sealants as soon as their fully developed teeth erupt.
