Sealants are clear white plastic fillings placed in the pits and grooves of the back teeth in order to protect them from bacteria and cavities.
The teeth are cleaned using Air Abrasion. The sealant is placed in the pits and grooves where bacteria typically produce cavities.
A laser curing light is used to harden the sealant producing a cavity-free smooth surface.
Sealants are an integral part of any preventive dental care program.
