Sealants helps teeth stay decay free!
Back teeth (premolars and molars) contain depressions and grooves that help grind food for easy digestion. These indentations are difficult to keep clean (especially for younger, “less aggressive” brushers), because toothbrush bristles can’t always reach into the sometimes-microscopic spaces. A dental sealant is a plastic material that is applied to the chewing surface of a back tooth, acting as a barrier that protects the enamel from plaque and acid. It’s a simple, fast procedure that helps teeth stay decay free!
