How do dental sealants work?

Sealants work by filling in the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the teeth. This prevents food particles from getting caught in the grooves and causing cavities. The application is fast and comfortable and can effectively protect teeth for many years.

At Sporting Smiles, we recommend sealing all permanent molars with deep grooves once they are fully erupted. If a child is very high risk for developing cavities, we may also recommend sealing baby teeth. Each child’s individual needs are taken into account when deciding on a plan for treatment. The sealant material used at Sporting Smiles is completely BPA free.
