Sealant Treatment

Sealants help prevent cavities and as such are critical to the health of your teeth.
Sealants work just like they sound, creating a barrier on the surface of your teeth to help keep food particles from hiding in your molars. As good as you are at dental hygiene, cavities can occur because food, especially sticky foods, sneak in and around those hard to reach places.
It is a good idea to get sealants as soon as your molars start coming through. Children and teenagers ages 6-14 or adults, without decay or fillings, are recommended to get sealants.

The sealant is painted on your pre-molars or molars with a clear, white or slightly tinted colour. We have two types of sealants and will choose the best for you depending on your particular individual circumstance.
