Sealants For Teeth

Sealants serve as protective plastic coatings meticulously applied to the grooves and depressions found on the biting surfaces of teeth. These areas, often so deep and narrow, pose a challenge for regular toothbrush bristles to clean effectively, making them vulnerable to decay. By filling these crevices, sealants act as a barrier against decay-causing bacteria and food particles.

We typically recommend the application of sealants as adult teeth emerge, although in certain cases, they can also be beneficial for baby teeth, especially if those teeth have deep grooves and are at a high risk for decay. The presence of sealants on the teeth significantly lowers the chance of tooth decay, provided they remain intact. Regular dental check-ups at Dunbar Dental Centre allow us to monitor the condition of the sealants and ensure they continue to offer the best possible protection against decay, helping maintain your oral health.
