Fissure Sealants

Dental office in Langley dentist office

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to protect them from tooth decay. Most tooth decay in children and teens occurs on these surfaces. Sealants protect the chewing surfaces from tooth decay by keeping germs and food particles out of these grooves.

A sealant can last for as long as 5 to 10 years, but should be checked at each regular dental appointment, and can be reapplied if they are no longer in place.
