Dental Sealants Chino Hills CA

Prevention!   Prevention!   Prevention!

Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored resin “coating” is painted onto the narrow grooves and surfaces of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.

Sealants protect the pits and fissures of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach.

Q: What is the pit and fissure?

A: Pit and fissure are the direct bacterial penetration point into the tooth.

A Dental Sealant is an easy and non-painful procedure. It takes 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 re-application is needed.

Children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
