Tooth Sealants

Dental sealants are used to protect the teeth against decay. ¬†The grooves in our teeth are so deep that brushing alone will not always remove the “deep in the grooves” food or plaque. Dr. Neely paints a thin, plastic coating on the chewing surface of teeth. This coating will help prevent tooth decay.

Usually dental sealants are placed on children’s teeth as soon as they erupt. ¬†However, some adults can benefit from sealants as well.

If you are afraid your teeth are too “groovy” and prone to decay, contact Dr. Neely today.
