The deep grooves on your premolars and molars (back teeth) can be attractive magnets for dangerous bacteria and cavity-causing food particles – thankfully, dental sealants provide simple and effective protection for patients of all ages. Our team will paint the tough acrylic “seal” directly onto the surface of the affected teeth, creating a solid barrier that will keep out these threats. However, it’s important to remember that sealants aren’t full-proof and that they don’t protect the surfaces in between each tooth. Practicing great oral hygiene and maintaining a balanced diet are still essential for maintaining your confident smile!
