Sealants are a preventive dentistry option we recommend most often for young patients. However, Dr. Laura Torrado and her Central Park South dentistry team also encourage adult patients who experience frequent decay or who have deep pits and grooves in the biting surfaces of teeth to consider protecting their teeth with dental sealants. This general dental service is easily completed during any regular checkup. We simply coat the teeth in a layer of liquid sealant. Then, a curing light is used to harden the sealants onto the teeth. Once in place, sealants are completely clear. They remain in place protecting patients from potential damage or decay for several years. Contact our team to find out more or schedule an appointment.
