Did you know that over half of children and adults have an average of 4 to 5 cavities? It is crucial that you are getting the best dental care to prevent cavities. At North Rivers Dental Associates, we are keen on providing all of our patients with high-quality dental services for beautiful smiles!

What are Sealants?

Sealants are a protective, plastic coating that fills the grooves of an individual’s back teeth. In doing so, this safeguards your teeth from any pre-existing cavities that may be on the rise. This is a great method to protect your teeth from plaque and remaining food particles lodged in teeth causing tooth decay.


  • Protects against cavities
  • Avoids enamel erosion due to sugar
  • Enhances overall oral health

How Does it Work?

A comprehensive oral exam will be completed of your mouth and teeth. Your teeth will be thoroughly brushed and cleaned before a sealant can be applied. You will then rinse with a gritty mouthwash that helps solidify application.

We will fill your back teeth with the plastic coating and harden it with ultraviolet light. You can smile again with a secure cavity preventative measure!
