Sealants

Dental Sealants play a huge role in preventing the formation of decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth. Applying a dental sealant is a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic "coating" is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively "seals" the deep grooves, making the teeth smoother and less likely to trap food and plaque. Plus the sealant acts as a barrier to protect 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.

Your Gaithersburg Dentist will 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.

Sealants are an especially important tool in the prevention of childhood tooth decay. Call today, 301-990-7778, to schedule your convenient dental appointment.
