What are sealants and what do they do?
A sealant is a resin material that binds to the chewing surface of the teeth and act like a barrier, protecting the enamel from plaque and acids. According to the American Dental Association, over 80% of cavities are caused decay that sealant can prevent. During your regular dental visits, your Wellness Doctor at Dr. Zak Family Dentistry will recommend that our Dental team apply sealants where needed, check the condition of your current sealants and reapply them when necessary.
