While proper brushing is essential to maintaining a beautiful smile and healthy teeth, dental sealants add an extra layer of protection, keeping plaque out of the cracks and grooves that are so difficult to reach with a toothbrush. Dental sealants make brushing easier and more effective, and help keep cavities from developing.
Often, dental sealants are used to prevent tooth decay in children, and are typically applied after permanent teeth have erupted. When placed on healthy teeth, adults can benefit from sealants as well.
