Applying dental sealant to the pits and grooves of teeth can prevent cavities from forming. It is an excellent way to prevent cavities on the molars and bicuspids of children, teenagers and some adults. Because the grooves on the chewing surface of these teeth are much thinner than a toothbrush’s bristles, bacteria can get trapped and cavities can form.
The procedure is very quick and simple and requires no anaesthetic. The dentist first cleans the teeth, then preps them for better adherence.
- Maintain healthy dental hygiene habits
- Have your dentist check the sealant on a regular basis
- A second application may be needed
