A sealant is a material that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. The sealant acts as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
Fluoride varnish treatments (for children ages 0 to 20 years old) are provided twice a year to prevent cavities from forming on the smooth surfaces of the teeth.
