We believe that the best dental material is your own natural teeth. We want our patients to keep their own natural dentition for a lifetime. Both natural teeth and teeth with restorations survive best in an oral environment that is clean and when there is a focus on diet. Therefore, our emphasis is on preventing cavities and preserving restored teeth, as well as preventing periodontal disease.
A sealant is a clear plastic material that is applied to pits and grooves of chewing surfaces of the teeth where decay occurs most often. The sealant acts as a barrier, protecting the decay-prone areas of the teeth from plaque and acid.
