Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are used on the surface of the back molar to fill natural fissures and pits where bacteria collect. The coating acts as a strong barrier to decay and helps to prevent cavities. Dental sealants can be clear, white, or slightly tinted, but nearly invisible. The tooth enamel does not contain any nerves, placing a sealant is painless and does not routinely require numbing shots.
