The grooves and depressions that form the chewing surfaces of the back teeth are extremely difficult, if not impossible, to clean. As bacteria reacts with food, acids form and break down tooth enamel. Recent studies indicate that 88% of cavities in American school children are caused this way.

Sealants protect these susceptible areas by sealing the grooves and depressions of the teeth. This prevents bacteria and food particles from residing in the chewing surfaces. Sealant material is a resin typically applied to the back teeth (molars and premolars) and areas prone to cavities. Sealants last for several years but need to be checked during regular appointments.

Sealants are a cost effective method of protecting the teeth most susceptible to decay.
