Houston Dentist Serving Children & Adults in Pasadena, Channelview, Baytown and Nearby Areas of Texas
Dental sealants act as a barrier and are intended to prevent cavities. They are primarily made of plastic tooth-colored or white material and are applied to the chewing surfaces of posterior teeth on adults and kids. These sealants prevent plaque or food from penetrating into the depressions and grooves on the surface of the tooth, making it harder for bacteria to develop and protect the tooth from cavities.
This makes dental sealants an ideal choice for children, adults, and especially people who have thin, brittle teeth or are prone to cavities. In short, sealants protect these vulnerable areas by doing exactly what their name implies: they “seal”.
