Sealants are thin, clear protective coverings that can be applied to the back teeth. They are meant to prevent cavities and deep staining that would otherwise occur if they weren't in place. The beauty about sealants is that they're ideal both for pediatric patients as well as adult patients alike. Most sealants have the ability to last for up to three years before they'll naturally wear away.
With the help of a thorough examination, we will be able to determine if sealants are right for you. Sealants are great for patients of all ages, though we often recommend them to our pediatric patients who may not be able to brush and floss properly just yet. If you have older sealants, we can replace them easily in our office at your own convenience. Sealants wear away naturally in roughly one to three years after initial application.
