Sealants | Protection for your teeth
WHAT ARE DENTAL SEALANTS?
Dental sealants are a preventive treatment used to protect your teeth from the damaging effects of cavities and decay. Our dentists at Valley Grace Dental generally provide dental sealants to children as soon as the permanent back molars erupt. Call 661-587-7002 for more information about dental sealants in Bakersfield, California, and to set up your appointment with Arthur Huang, DDS and our dental team.
A sealant is a preventive dental treatment that our dentist may recommend to protect your teeth from decay. A dental sealant is made of a clear or tooth-colored resin material, which is painted onto the chewing surface of the tooth. By blocking out the bacteria and food debris that lead to tooth decay, the sealant prevents decay and cavities. The dental sealant forms a smooth surface over the natural pits and grooves of the tooth surface, which also makes it easier to effectively clean your teeth with normal brushing.
