                    Sealants coat the tooth’s grooves with a bonded coating

                                                     and keep plaque and food particles out, reducing  decay & drilling on the tooth. 

Text Box:  Grooves are an easy place  for plaque and bits of food to hide from toothbrushes, eventually causing decay. Sealants usually save the time and expense of having a tooth filled. 
       Before sealant:                      After sealant:

      decay prone grooves                  smooth, decay resistant

 

 

                                                          

                                                           

 

 

 

 Text Box: Children receive the greatest benefit from having sealants applied to new 6-year and 12-year molars.
  Dr. Denholtz provides a 3 year no-charge replacement for his sealants in patients who maintain their recommended check-up interval.  This will continue its protection, usually saving the tooth from a filling.
