Have you noticed your back teeth anytime? Check out now. It shows multiple bumps with grooves in between. This peculiar pattern helps you chew food. But did you know this pattern can also result in tooth decay if proper oral hygiene protocols are not followed. They tend to trap food debris, and the bacteria they harbor are often hard to clean, despite regular brushing especially in children.

Applying dental sealants over the back teeth as soon as they erupt can reduce the occurrence of cavities by limiting the presence of bacteria and food particles. Dental sealants are basically a plastic coating applied over the grooves of the back teeth to prevent plaque and food debris from accumulating there and causing cavities. The preventive treatment is mostly given for children after their permanent molars erupt. It is also very useful in adults with aberrant groove pattern on their molars which seem to be prone to decay. It is a very simple procedure and can be done in one dental visit.

If you are considering getting dental sealants done for your child, book an appointment with us for a consultation.
