Brushing and flossing are the best way to prevent cavities, but sometimes it’s difficult to reach every area – especially the back teeth you use to chew. They tend to be rough and uneven and the perfect place for food and cavity-causing bacteria to hide.

To protect these teeth, especially in children, we recommend sealants. They are a thin, protective coating (made from plastic or other dental materials) that can be applied to the chewing surface of these teeth. They can keep cavities from forming and possibly even stop early stages of decay from becoming a cavity. Sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of decay by almost 80 percent in molars.

Cavity-causing bacteria is in everyone’s mouth. When food particles come in contact with this bacteria, they produce acids that can create cavities. A sealant helps to keep those bits of food out and prevents bacteria and acid from settling on the teeth. Sealing a child’s molars as soon as they erupt can help to keep them cavity-free.

The application of sealants is fast and painless. We will clean and dry your teeth and use an acidic gel to roughen the tooth surface so a strong bond can form between the tooth and the sealant. Then we will rinse off the gel and dry the tooth before applying the sealant onto the tooth’s grooves. We will then use a special blue light to harden the sealant.
