A dental sealant is a plastic material that is put on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. The sealant material flows into the pits and grooves on those surfaces and acts like a barrier, protecting enamel by “sealing out” bacteria and bits of food.
Sealing a tooth is fast and painless. Sealants can last several years before they need to be reapplied. Ask our staff and doctors at A Smile Pediatric Dentistry if sealants will help your child.
A Smile Pediatric Dentistry, a Plano based kids dental clinic, proudly serves children in Plano, Frisco, Allen, McKinney, and surrounding areas.
