5. What are sealants, anyway?

Dental-Sealants

Sealants are a thin, plastic coating that is painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth — usually the back teeth (the premolars, and molars) — to prevent tooth decay. The painted on liquid sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and groves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth. (WebMD)

Best of all– they are BPA-free at First Impression Dental!

 No need to worry about any harmful chemicals!

 

FACTS ABOUT SEALANTS:

  • aid in prevention of CAVITIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
