What is a sealant?

Teeth are not flat. They come with fissures, grooves, and pits. 

Plaque loves rough surfaces. It sticks to the tooth surface wherever it can. 

When you don't brush your teeth regularly, plaque settles down on one of those rough surfaces. 

Bacteria within the plaque starts releasing acid to create cavities. 

Sealant is applied to fissures, grooves and pits to prevent the cavities from starting. 

It is easily performed on patient without anesthesia.

It is efficient. It is more affordable than other forms of treatment. It is a painless procedure. 

If patient is prone to cavities, sealants are highly recommended. 

Dental insurance usually covers entirely for children and young adults. 

There will be a fee to get sealants done for adults.
