Dental sealants

Molar teeth have grooves and pits on their surfaces. These can be a breeding ground for decay-causing plaque bacteria. 

Dental sealants are highly effective in providing a protective barrier for molars. A thin layer of a plastic compound is “painted” onto the grooved surfaces of the teeth. The compound is set and sealed using ultra-violet light. 

Dental sealants are best applied as soon as the adult teeth have fully erupted.
