While brushing and flossing are the best ways to prevent cavities, it’s not always easy to clean every part of your tooth. Do you want to protect your teeth against tooth decay? Then it’s time to consider getting dental sealants. Dental sealants are plastic coatings that are placed on the chewing surface of your permanent back teeth (your molars and premolars) to help prevent cavities and decay.
In fact, dental sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of tooth decay in molars by nearly 80%. Anyone can get sealants, but the sooner you get them after your permanent teeth grow in the better. That way, you can keep your teeth cavity-free from the start. Protect your teeth from tooth decay with this quick and painless process by contacting our dental office today.
