Added Protection Against Tooth Decay
Decay generally happens in premolars and molars due to the build-up of bacteria within the crevices of the tooth's biting surface. Even with proper oral hygiene, bacteria within these deep crevices is extremely hard to brush out and can allow plaque and bacteria to collect, which lead to a cavity that needs to be filled.
Dental sealants effectively create a protective layer over a tooth's biting surface by sealing off tooth crevices, making it impossible for plaque and bacteria to form. Dental sealants also make brushing these teeth much more effective which also keeps the cavities away.
Dental sealants are for everyone, so we invite you to request an appointment and come in to talk more with us about getting dental sealants.
