With a tiny bit of help from oral sealants, you can keep your molars working fantastically, free from cavities and tooth decay. Here’s a little bit of info on dental sealants for you and how they work. If you have more inquiries after going over this post, feel free to ask them to us during your next exam

Tooth sealants, which shield your pearly whites from damaging bacteria and tooth erosion, function pretty simply. Imagine a raincoat. The rain falls on it, but due to the special substance on the coat, the rain slides right off. Like the raincoat, the oral sealant is fashioned using a special substance, but it fights bacterial acids and tooth decay instead of rain. While cavity-causing acids would usually be cutting holes in your molars, these holes (cavities) won’t develop as fast when you have an oral sealant on your tooth. Without the sealant, cavities will be much more likely to grow. With or without the sealant, it’s still vital to brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once per day.
