Regular brushing and flossing isn’t always enough to prevent cavities. Food can be trapped in deep pits and grooves in the back teeth, which leads to cavities. Children, for example, may find it difficult to brush their molars. A simple and effective way to address this issue, especially for children and cavity prone adults, is dental sealants.
Dental sealants protect the teeth by covering the surface of the teeth with a thin plastic film, creating a barrier between the teeth and cavity-causing bacteria. Our team can coat your teeth with the sealant on your regular hygiene visit. Dental sealants can last up to 10 years after being placed.
