An easy way to prevent cavities and keep healthy teeth healthy!
Is a sealant the same as a filling?
Not at all. Sealants are an elective procedure used on healthy teeth to lower the risk of developing cavities. Sealants keep the teeth healthy. Filings are used when teeth already have cavities. Unlike sealants, filings require drilling to remove decay, which usually means local numbing is necessary. Sealants are a safe, painless, and easy way to practice cavity prevention.
