Dental Sealants in North Vancouver

Dental sealants are a means of protecting the chewing surfaces of your teeth. They are most commonly used on permanent molars, serving to seal out plaque and food particles and help prevent cavities. They are available in Northern Vancouver at Pier Dental Centre.

What Are Dental Sealants?

A dental sealant is a thin plastic coating that is painted onto the chewing surfaces of teeth to protect against tooth decay. It is not a replacement for brushing but does help protect areas that are frequently missed or hard to reach with a brush, penetrating between teeth and into pits and fissures.
