Creates a Barrier

Dental sealants are a BPA-free, liquid plastic that is painted directly onto the teeth. Once dental sealants are dried, a barrier is created between your child’s pearly whites and decay causing plaque, bacteria and acid.

Reduces Risk of Tooth Decay/Cavities

Due to the fact that dental sealants create a barrier, the teeth are protected from the effects of bacteria, acid and plaque known for causing tooth decay and cavities. This does not mean your child can skip the at-home dental care, it simply reduces their risk of complications.

Makes Dental Care Easier

Have you ever looked at the surfaces of your child’s teeth? You’ll see pits, grooves and depressions, the perfect place for debris, plaque and bacteria to hide. Dental sealants actually seal these areas, making it impossible for things to get stuck. This allows your child to more properly clean the chewing surfaces of teeth where cavities commonly form.

Affordable Treatment Option

In comparison to restorative treatment options such as dental fillings, inlays, onlays and even crowns, dental sealants are an extremely affordable option that can save you time, money and hassle later on in life.
