Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin layers of dental resin that are applied to your child’s rear adult molars when they erupt. Typically, only the rear teeth are treated because they’re the most susceptible to cavities.

The resin is applied to the tooth in liquid form, then is hardened using UV light to create a durable, impenetrable barrier that prevents oral bacteria, food particles, and acid from contacting the tooth directly. In turn, this prevents cavities for up to 3-5 years or longer.
