Sealant Treatment

Sealants are helpful dental accessories that prevent cavities and keep your teeth healthy.
They create a barrier from food particles getting stuck in the crevices of your molars. Sealants are great for anyone as soon as your molars start rolling in. 
At Stoney Trail Dental, we recommend children and teens starting at age 6 get sealants. It is also a good idea for adults who have no cavities or fillings to use sealants.

A clear, mostly white but slightly tinted colour is put on your pre-molars or molars when the sealant is applied. There are two styles of sealants. Your dentist at Stoney Trail Dental will decide which option is best for your teeth.
