How Sealants are Used to Prevent Tooth Decay

Some teeth are more prone to decay than others; this is why some dentists advise getting a sealant:

– Teeth with a chewing surface (the back molars) contain grooves to aid grinding of food; it can be difficult to clean these grooves sufficiently.

– The dentist can apply a dental sealant to these teeth to act as a barrier, protecting against plaque and bacteria buildup.

– The procedure is very quick and only requires one visit to complete.

“Sealants, which hold up well under the incredible force of everyday chewing, may last for years before a reapplication is needed.”
