To tell you more about dental sealants in Manchester, Connecticut, our dentist is happy to share some interesting facts with you, which are:

-Dental sealants are plastic coatings that are placed over the chewing surfaces of the teeth. They are clear, so they are tough to see. They are typically used for the back permanent teeth because they are harder to clean.

-Dental sealants keep plaque, bacteria, acid and other harmful substances from wearing down the tooth enamel and causing problems. They can even help prevent tooth decay.

-Dental sealants are most often used to protect children’s teeth. They can do so for many years. 

-Dental sealants only need one quick appointment to be placed. Typically, sealants can be provided during your child’s routine dental checkup.
