Sealants are a simple preventive care procedure where the doctor applies a tooth colored acrylic coating on the surface of the molars. This coating blocks the food particles enter into the teeth, thus helps prevent tooth decay in children. Once applied, the sealants last for a few years.
Applying sealants on the chewing teeth is a quick and painless procedure. The doctor first cleans the teeth, etches it with a chemical substance, and applies the sealant on the surface of the teeth. The doctor then uses a light source to speed up the drying process.
