Proper brushing and flossing help remove food particles and plaque from the smooth surfaces of your teeth, but they often can’t reach into the small pits and depressions on the chewing surfaces of your back teeth, allowing food particles and plaque to build up there.
In these cases, we can provide a thorough cleaning and then apply dental sealants that will bond into the depressions, acting as a barrier to protect the enamel from plaque and other unwanted substances.
Great candidates for dental sealants are teenagers and children. Adults can also benefit from sealants. Ask your First Family Dentists on your next visit.
