Have you struggled with cavities all your life? Are cavities starting to pop up more frequently, even though you try to maintain good dental hygiene habits?

Dental sealants cover the chewing surfaces of your teeth in a thin, plastic coating. They help prevent cavities by acting as a barrier to plaque. These sealants quickly bond to each groove in your teeth and will shield them from dental decay. While it’s still essential for you to continue brushing twice a day and flossing once a day, these sealants will make sure that the most unreachable spots in your mouth are no longer vulnerable to plaque.
Even though dental sealants are typically geared toward children, countless adults have them an experience several great benefits every day. Sealants prevent food and plaque from gathering in the grooves and depressions of your tooth surfaces.
