Sealant Treatments

Fort McMurray Family Dentists

Sealants work just like they sound, sealing out food particles from your molars. You may be great at brushing and flossing your teeth but cavities can still happen. Food, especially sticky foods stay around in those hard to reach places. Sealants help cavities from occurring.

Since sealants are applied to your molars, it is best to get them as soon as they come through. We recommend children and teens ages 6-14 or adults without fillings or decay get sealants applied to their teeth. We paint the sealants on your pre-molars with a clear, slightly tinted or white colour depending on what is best for you. Our two types of sealants are glass lonomer and composite resin, both a type of white filling.

To help you prevent cavities, we offer sealants to protect your teeth.
