Dental Sealants, Dental Sealants Procedure
Dental Sealants are a plastic material that is put on the back teeth, both molar and premolar, to help prevent decay. We provide this service to our Canton, GA area patients on a regular basis and here is a quick summary!
The back teeth are more likely to have decay due to the creases and crevices that are present on the surface providing a place for food and plaque to collect.
Brushing with a toothbrush removes some of the food and plaque, but some remains on the teeth and causes decay.
Sealants are applied to the top of the teeth providing a barrier to prevent food and plaque from collecting in the creases and crevices of the teeth.
