Dental sealants

A preventive measure

Some teeth are dotted with thin grooves, pits and fissures where food, plaque, and harmful bacteria can stick and infiltrate the tooth surface, causing enamel decay.

What is the role of dental sealants?

The sealant is a thin layer of composite resin that fills the pits and cracks in the chewing surface of the teeth. It creates a smooth surface to which bacteria have difficulty adhering to and which becomes much easier to clean. The sealant is, therefore, a protective barrier.

Who is this procedure for?

Studies have shown that young people aged 6 to 14 are more likely to develop carious lesions but both, children and adults can benefit from sealants.

During your periodic check-up, we will carefully assess the condition of your sealants and replace them if necessary.
