Sealants

Although sealants are often associated with the protection of permanent posterior teeth from decay in young patients, they can also be utilized in a different way in adult patients with sensitivity associated with exposed root surfaces or cervical erosion. When a tooth is overly sensitive to cold or sweets, the exposed tooth can be sealed. Sealants can microscopically bond to the exposed tooth and a prosthodontist can help remove the painful symptoms.
