Your teeth play an important role in your life, and it is important to keep them protected. To keep your teeth safe from tooth decay, your dentist may recommend using dental sealants to protect your teeth.
What are Dental Sealants?
Dental Sealants are a thin, plastic-like material that your dentist can apply to the surfaces of your teeth to help prevent tooth decay. Dental sealants are typically applied to the back teeth, but your dentist will recommend where they would be the most useful for you.
Dental Sealants can help form a protective barrier over your teeth and coupled with brushing and flossing can help to keep your smile healthy and bright. Dental sealants are especially good at keeping plaque and food particles out of the depressions and grooves of your teeth where brushing can have difficulty reaching.
