Interested in preventing cavities on your back teeth? Sealants are the right choice for protecting teeth from forming cavities on the biting surfaces of teeth.
Plaque can hide in the grooves and pits on the biting surfaces of teeth. Once the teeth are cleaned and etched, sealants can be applied to the teeth. Sealants are tooth-colored dental materials that are applied to teeth to seal the deep grooves and pits which are normal parts of tooth anatomy.
Sealants can work for dental patients of all ages as long as the teeth do not have cavities and the teeth have been thoroughly cleaned and prepared. Sealants can last several years with good home dental care.
If you want to see if you are a candidate for dental sealants, please call North Ave Dental Associates for your private consultation.
