Especially prone to tooth decay? Ask us about sealing your teeth to prevent cavities.
A dental sealant is a clear material that’s painted onto your tooth’s surface. This treatment helps prevent germs and bacteria from damaging your enamel — especially the hard-to-clean pits and grooves of back teeth.
We often recommend adding this treatment to your routine dental cleaning and exam.
