Dental Sealants South Boston

Sealants provide an alternative to treating tooth decay.  They are designed with resin materials and are thin enough to be placed on the pits, fissures, and grooves of your molars.  This helps prevent decay from affecting the surface of your teeth.

Decay can initiate from the back of your teeth and grow to affect the grooves as well as the chewing surfaces.  Sealants are applied onto the chewing surfaces to prevent the growth of the decay.  Because of their thin application and effectiveness, sealants are a dependable solution for patients looking to save their teeth from decay.

Additional problems that sealants address are cavities.  This is a frequent problem that results in the appearance of a hole in your teeth.  Because sealants are specifically applied onto the surface, they effectively prevent the occurrence of cavities.
