A dental sealant is a protective coating that is place on pits and grooves of permanent chewing teeth (molars) where the toothbrush cannot reach. Dental sealants make the tooth a smoother surface to help prevent food from getting trapped inside the tooth, which will ultimately help prevent cavities from developing. The dental sealants are typically clear or white in color.
Dental sealants typically last between three to five years. At your cleaning appointments, Dr. Bevans will evaluate whether you are a candidate for dental sealants, and will also evaluate whether your dental sealants are still intact. Occasionally, a tooth may need a dental sealant touched up.
