Sealants protect these surfaces from tooth decay, by preventing germs and food particles from entering the grooves. The composite can be clear, white or tinted to blend in with your natural tooth colour.
Sealing the grooves in your teeth does not require extracting any of the tooths natural structure. After the tooth is cleaned, a special composite is placed on the chewing surface. The tooth is then rinsed and dried for the sealant to then be applied. A heat-activated light may also be used harden the sealant.
A durable sealant can last up to 10 years if looked after. Sealants should be checked upon each dental visit and can be reapplied if they have disappeared from wear.
