DENTAL SEALANTS: PROTECT AND PREVENT

Sealants are a preventive measure that helps reduce the incidence of decay by filling in the pits, fissures, and crevices found on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. The process is non-invasive and quick. While sealants are not foolproof, numerous studies demonstrate a reduction in the rate of cavities when sealants are used. There can be some concern with sealant materials containing BPA and also with sealant material chipping off and actually creating a greater risk for the development of cavities. We are happy to say that our sealant material does not contain BPA nor is it the type that is more likely to chip.
