Dental Sealants
Orange County Santa Ana CA

Prevent Tooth Decay

Highly effective in preventing formation of cavities on the biting surfaces of your back teeth, dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.

Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing can’t reach.

Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to apply on each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last approximately 3 years before a reapplication is needed.

Sealants, however don’t prevent cavities from forming in between the teeth. We recommend flossing to prevent formation of cavities in between the teeth.
