Dental Sealants Keep Decay Away From At-Risk Teeth
As your dentist in Vancouver, we always consider what’s in the best interest of your smile and health. It’s a responsibility we take very seriously. We always aim to intercept oral health issues early before they evolve into more serious, costly problems with a focus on prevention. One of the techniques we use to keep cavities at bay is dental sealants.
What are dental sealants?
Dental sealants are made of a thin liquid plastic coating. This coating is applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars to protect them from decay-causing bacteria. These teeth are more susceptible to developing cavities because they feature pits and grooves that can trap plaque and food. Although you may be very diligent when it comes to your at-home hygiene routine, your brush just can’t reach these areas. As the name implies, dental sealants seal off those pits and fissures, making it impossible for plaque to accumulate in them.
