Prevent Decay

Dental sealants prevent decay, by covering the grooves in your teeth, that are hard to reach with a brush. These parts of teeth, because of their inaccessible location are vulnerable to tooth decay. Dental sealants are simply an acrylic layer over these grooves, providing protection for the hard-to-reach sections of the teeth.
