Dental sealants are tooth-colored acrylic coating. They are painted onto the tooth's surface in order to seal deep grooves. They act as a barrier and protect enamel from plaque and acids.
Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t always reach. They’re highly effective for preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your teeth.
Sealants are easy to apply, and it only takes a few minutes to seal each tooth. They hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed. The way food tastes should in no way be influenced by the sealants.
Dental sealants are great for kids who are still learning how to properly take care of their teeth. That said, they can also be great for adults who have a history of cavities. Regardless of your age, sealants can help you in the fight against cavities.
