Dental sealants are a preventive treatment that is a great option for children or patients who are more prone to cavities. The sealants consist of a special type of dental resin, which is applied to the surfaces of your molars and premolars. In turn, this helps prevent tooth decay and cavities from developing. Back teeth are a favorite place for leftover food and cavity-causing bacteria to hide in the nooks and crannies!
There is no substitution for brushing and flossing, but sealants can keep cavities from forming and can even stop early stage cavities from becoming any larger. Sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of decay by 80% and can last even up to 10 years.
