Teeth are full of deep crevices and sometimes, despite our best efforts to brush and floss daily, we need a helping hand to prevent cavities in those hard-to-reach spots.
Dental sealants are made of a special resin that bonds into the grooves of your teeth to create a barrier against food particles and plaque and is used to protect your tooth from a potential cavity.
According to the American Dental Association, dental sealants can reduce the risk of decay by nearly 80% in molars. Sealants can also be used for children and the earlier you get them, the more protection they offer. Sealants can last up to 10 years before needing to be replaced.
