At your local Madison, NJ, dental office, Adams Dental, sealants are a great option for both adults and children. It effectively “seals” the deep grooves in teeth, acting as a barrier to protect enamel from plaque and acids. Think of how fast children brush their teeth. Do you really think they are doing it effectively — especially on hard-to-reach back teeth? Sealants are a tooth-colored coating that’s highly effective in preventing tooth decay on the biting surfaces of the back teeth.
Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth, and they hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
