Even with adequate levels of fluoride strengthening teeth, every groove and pit in your enamel is still at risk of tooth decay. This is because bacteria can build-up in these difficult-to-clean areas and will release acids that break down the enamel over time. 

Dental sealants are a cost-effective method of stopping tooth decay before it starts. Advisable at all ages, these thin coatings create a protective barrier for the chewing surfaces of tooth. There are multiple types of sealant available (including fissure sealants or glass ionomer preventative sealants) but your dentist will be able to recommend the best product for your individual circumstances.

How can it be treated? 

Your dentist will begin by cleaning the relevant teeth. The chewing surfaces of these teeth will then be roughened using an acidic solution. Once the teeth are ready, the sealant will be painted onto the tooth enamel. It will then bond to the tooth and harden as it dries.

How long will it take?

Having a sealant applied is a quick and painless procedure.
