Dental Sealants for Winston-Salem & Clemmons, NC
Sealants are a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” that are painted onto the chewing surface of teeth and are a highly effective way to prevent tooth decay in these areas. This simple procedure essentially “seals” a tooth’s deep grooves which acts as a barrier in protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing can’t reach.
They are easy to place and only take a few minutes to be applied. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before reapplication is needed.
Both children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
