How Does Dental Sealant Work?

Dental sealant is a plastic coating painted on your teeth. It attaches to your teeth, smoothing the rough edges, depressions, and grooves that are typically found on teeth. It gives your teeth a protective coating, helping to prevent tooth decay and cavities.

Sealants are usually done on back teeth since they are hard to reach and very irregular. Even though you brush and floss your teeth, you may miss some areas. For this reason, sealants are popular. We use dental sealant most often on children, though we do perform sealants on adults too!

If you have any questions about dental sealants, feel free to contact us today at 703-620-4050.
