Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a preventive dental treatment that involves applying a thin, protective coating to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). These surfaces often have deep grooves and pits where food particles and bacteria can easily accumulate, increasing the risk of cavities. According to the American Dental Association, dental sealants decrease the threat of cavities in molars by about 80%.

Sealants act as a barrier, protecting the teeth from decay-causing bacteria and acids. They are particularly beneficial for children and teenagers, as their newly erupted permanent teeth are more prone to cavities. However, adults can also benefit from sealants, especially if they are prone to cavities or have deep grooves in their teeth.

At Simply Dentistry of the North Shore, we recommend dental sealants as a simple and effective way to help prevent cavities and maintain optimal oral health. The procedure is quick, painless, and can be completed in just one visit. Protect your smile with dental sealants and enjoy a healthier, cavity-free mouth.
