Dental Sealants Extra Protection Right Where You Need It
The back teeth can be pretty difficult to clean because they are filled with many small, hard to reach crevices. Children often miss them while brushing, and they can even be tricky for adults. To help prevent decay from developing on these teeth, we can cover them with something called a dental sealant.
It is just a thin, clear layer of a plastic-based material that coats a tooth and prevents bacteria and plaque from damaging the enamel. They only take minutes to apply, and the process is completely painless. It’s an ideal treatment for children still learning how to take care of their teeth.
