Dental sealants help prevent cavities from forming on molars and bicuspids. This preventative treatment protects the permanent teeth of children, adolescents and even adults. Since the grooves in molars and bicuspids are often finer than the bristles of a toothbrush, it’s hard to remove all the bacteria that accumulates there.
Applying a dental sealant is a simple, quick procedure that does not require anaesthesia. First, the teeth are cleaned, then a sealant resin is applied.
