Brushing and flossing continue to be the best ways to prevent cavities, but its not always easy to clean deep grooves or pits. These nooks and crannies are susceptible to decay and cavity causing bacterias love to hide in these areas.
Dental sealants are a method to help fill in these areas and help to keep them easily cleaned. Sealants are a thin protective coating that is applied to the teeth in an easy, comfortable and fast procedure. A cleaning/etching gel is placed for fifteen seconds, rinsed and dried. The sealant is painted into the grooves and hardened with a curing light.
The earlier you can get sealants the better. If you have questions about sealants, please don’t hesitate to ask our informed team.
