Sealants

Highly effective in preventing tooth decay on the chewing surfaces of your posterior teeth, sealants are a simple procedure in which a white-colored acrylic "coating" is painted into the grooves of the tooth. This effectively "seals" the deep grooves of the tooth where decay is most likely to start and allows your toothbrush to more easily clean the chewing surface.
