Dental sealants are incredibly effective at preventing decay by creating a smooth coat over the surface of your teeth.
The molars at the back of your mouth have tiny fissures or grooves where the food particles often get stuck and cause tooth decay. Dental sealants seal these grooves and protect your teeth from acids and plaque.
The application of dental sealants is simple. The dentist applies a thin acrylic coating onto the surface of your molars or back teeth. It may take the dentist a few minutes to apply the dental sealant to each tooth. Once each tooth is sealed, then the procedure is over.
At Kane and Kerper Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Oxnard, we use high-quality, long-lasting dental sealants that will allow you to chew normally and bite with the same force as your original teeth.
Both children and adults can benefit from dental sealants.
