Dental Sealants Doylestown PA
What are Dental Sealants? | Doylestown PA
Highly effective in preventing decay on biting surfaces of our chewing teeth, sealants are straight forward procedures in which a tooth colored or clear resin coating is applied onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively seals the deep grooves acting as a barrier, protecting the enamel from plaque and acids.
Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing cannot reach.
Sealants are applied with care and attention. The tooth depressions and grooves are carefully analyzed for the presence of decay. If no decay is observed, the tooth surface is meticulously cleaned, isolated with a rubber dam for complete dryness. Application of the sealant is then accomplished.
