Dental Sealants

Sealants are key for us here at Bridgetown Dental in helping you implement a prevention based dental care program. Ideal for children and adults, everyone can benefit from using sealants to prevent tooth decay. Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach.

Dental sealants use a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
