Sealants

A sealant is a tooth-colored or clear plastic material that our dentist will place on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, where tooth decay is most likely to occur. A sealant prevents decay by covering the grooves and pits of chewing surfaces, which seals out the germs and food that cause decay. Dr. Horlick recommends having sealants placed on these back teeth as soon as they erupt, which usually occurs between the ages of 6-12. For more information on sealants or preventive dentistry, give Blue and White Dental in Tarzana, CA a call today.
