Dental Sealants

Wappingers Falls, New York

Sealants are placed on the occlusal surfaces of teeth as a part of a comprehensive caries management approach.  Effectively sealing the pits and fissures of the teeth can prevent cavities by forming a physical barrier.

Cavities often start on the chewing surfaces of back teeth.  These surfaces have grooves and pits that collect and trap plaque, bacteria and food. These areas are hard to keep clean which is why sealants are recommended.

How do sealants work?

A sealant is a barrier applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth, most often applied on children and teenagers. However, adults can greatly benefit from sealant applications too!
