Sealants in Brooklyn, NY

A sealant is a clear or tooth-colored material that Dr. Alpert will apply to the surface of the back molars, where tooth decay is most prevalent. A sealant helps to prevent decay by creating a barrier over the chewing surfaces, which effectively seals out the germs and food that typically cause decay. In order to be most effective, Dr. Alpert recommends having dental sealants placed on the back molars as soon as the erupt, which is often around the age of 12 or 13. Please call our Brooklyn, NY dental office for more information about the benefits of dental sealants.
