How do Sealants Prevent Cavities?
Along with regular brushing and flossing, sealants are the best way to prevent tooth decay from consuming your child's teeth. The seal stops the spread of plaque from eating away at the most vulnerable part of the tooth. In fact, sealants have been proven to reduce the risk of decay in molars by 80%. You can think of sealants as a helmet that shields the top of molars from decay. Preventing this decay is how we preserve the teeth from developing holes or contracting periodontal disease. Sealants can last many years and are much cheaper than fillers. You can visit your Dove Canyon, CA, dentist to secure a safe future for your family's dental health.
