What are sealants and what do they do?
A sealant is a resin material that protects tooth enamel from the deteriorating from the effects of plaque and acids. According to the American Dental Association, more than 80% of cavities are caused by this decay. However, if the sealant is placed properly, decay will not occur, and your teeth will be protected from cavities for several years. At Dr. Zak Downey Dental Care we check to make sure sealants are doing their job and replace them at the right time so you don’t have to worry about decay, deterioration, or cavities.
