Sealants are a protective varnish that is placed to protect the deep grooves in your back teeth. These grooves are hiding places that allow bacteria to accumulate and cause tooth decay. The sealant eliminates the hiding place and works to prevent cavities.
At Woodside Dental Group, we encourage all adults and children to have their back teeth properly sealed. Sealants can prevent the kind of decay that starts in the deep grooves of back teeth, and we believe if you keep your teeth properly sealed, can reduce your risk for this kind of decay. Adults are just as prone to tooth decay as children are, and this inexpensive procedure will help avoid much more expensive problems in the future.
