Dental sealants are a plastic material applied to the chewing surface of your back teeth (premolars and molars) to act as a barrier to prevent cavities. Deep grooves generally found on premolars and molars are often difficult to keep clean by tooth brushing alone. Sealants protect these areas by "sealing out" plaque and food.
Sealants are easily applied by cleaning your tooth and painting on the sealant. Sealants are then cured with a light, and the plastic resin bonds to the tooth, protecting the deep grooves and pits. No anesthetic is required.

“I had to find a new dentist in 1977. I elected to try the new Byron Dental Group, which had just opened. I’ve been going there for 30 years and I sure made the right choice. The staff is excellent; they use up-to-date equipment and resources, all generating a more personal touch.”

“I was a patient at the Byron Dental Group for over 20 years. A career change brought me to Texas. My new dentist told me I needed several thousands-of-dollars’ worth of work. I called and scheduled an appointment at the Byron Dental Group while returning for the holidays. Their second opinion revealed no such work was needed. I really appreciate their honesty.”
