What are sealants and do they work?

Sealants consist of a flowable barrier that we paint onto the surfaces of back teeth where food particles and bacteria usually collect. By creating this invisible barrier, we can reduce the instances of tooth decay.

Sealants are effective for several years on average when we can replace them to continue protecting teeth from cavities. Because sealants are non-invasive and often less costly than fillings, many patients appreciate having them as part of their preventive dental routine.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
