Sealants in Hurst,TX
The tiny pits and deep grooves on your back teeth can trap food and are difficult to clean, making them vulnerable to cavities. Fortunately, these pits and grooves can be “sealed off” using sealants.
A sealant is a white-colored coating that is simply painted onto the biting surface of a tooth – no numbing or drilling required – and that quickly hardens into a solid barrier to help prevent cavities.
Research has shown that the use of pit-and-fissure sealants can reduce cavities on biting surfaces in permanent molars by 76% over a 2-3 year period.
Sealants can be applied during your child’s regular cleaning appointment.
