Most people experience some amount of decay in their lifetime. Usually it is located in the grooves in the upper/lower back teeth. Sealants provide a way to reduce the amount of food and bacteria that form in these areas which will reduce the possibility that the tooth will experience further damage thus requiring more extensive and costly treatments. The process is very quick and requires no need for anesthetic. We can usually place these during your cleaning appointment, eliminating a need for another appointment. To learn more, simply ask one of our friendly team members about sealants.
