Dental Sealants

Dr. Belton, DMD, General & Cosmetic Dentistry – Brandon FL

Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.

Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach.

Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.

While sealants were originally recommended for children, adults now see the benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay,  and are having them placed over deep fissures and grooves in their teeth.
