Dental Sealants

The best Dental Sealants in Brookhaven

A dental sealant provided by Brookhaven Dental Associates is a thin (approximately 0.5 mm or 1/50 inch), smooth plastic coating that is bonded to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars) to protect them from decay caused by plaque retention.

 

Sealants are highly effective in preventing tooth decay (caries). The procedure consists of applying a soft resin-based material onto the teeth without causing pain or discomfort and in most cases, they provide 100 percent protection.
