It is not always easy to clean every nook and cranny of your mouth even though you may brush and floss regularly. During the chewing process the back teeth (or molars) are most used and due to their rough and uneven structure it is favorite place for cavity causing bacteria to hide. Dental sealents act as a protective layer on top of the teeth to stop the bacteria from coming into contact with your teeth and causing cavity.

Children get molars around age 6 and second molars erupt around age of 12. Sealing the teeth as early as possible can keep the teeth cavity free and allow you to save time and money in the long run.

Applying Sealants to the teeth is a quick and painless process which usually starts by cleaning and drying the tooth and then placing an acidic gel on the teeth. After few seconds the dentist rinses off the tooth and applies a layer of sealant on top of it. A blue light is used to harden the sealant.
