What are dental sealants?
Dental sealants are a protective coating of plastic or other material that helps protect teeth from cavities and decay preventing accumulation of bacteria. Sealants are generally recommended for children between the ages of 6 and 12 and are applied on the chewing surface of teeth. Dental sealants are known to reduce the risk of decay and other dental conditions by 80%. Sealants can be applied during your regular dental visits with us.
Dental sealants are highly effective in preventing tooth decay on the biting surfaces of chewing teeth. Dr. Lawrence Wu can apply dental sealants in only a few minutes at NuSmile Dental & Orthodontics for long-lasting protection.
