Dental Sealants and Bonding in Dallas, TX

To protect the most decay-prone teeth in the mouth, Dr. Nolley may place a dental sealant. A dental sealant is a clear or tooth-colored plastic material applied to the pits and grooves of the back molars. When in place, sealants will:

  • Effectively block out the food and plaque that cause decay
  • Create a surface that is easier to keep clean through regular flossing and brushing

Dr. Nolley recommends having dental sealants placed on the back molars as soon as they erupt in the mouth, which typically occurs between the ages of six and twelve years old. He may also recommend sealants for adults who are prone to tooth decay. Placing a sealant requires just one quick, pain-free visit to our Dallas office, and they can protect your teeth for many years.
