A dental sealants is a thin resin-based material that is applied to the uneven chewing surfaces of your child's teeth. The material seals off these deep grooves to prevent food, plaque, and bacteria from collecting, minimizing the risk of decay developing. The back teeth in particular are prone to decay because these uneven surfaces can present a challenge to keep clean with a toothbrush.
Prevention is the key to enjoying healthy teeth. At Zachary J. Holder, DDS, our goal is to use every preventative treatment available to protect your teeth from decay. Application of dental sealants is a very effective procedure and is just one more step we can take to get your child’s teeth off to a healthy start
