Everyone wants healthy, disease-free teeth. While good oral hygiene can help to prevent tooth decay, there is no guarantee that cavities will not form. Watch this video to find out more about how a dentist may use sealants to help protect your teeth.
The video discusses the fact that cavities often develop in hollows on the tooth surface which are difficult to access with a toothbrush. The presenter explains that sealants can be used to prevent plaque from being able to enter cracks, fissures, and hollows in the surface of teeth. The video shows sealant being applied to a patient’s back teeth, which are particularly vulnerable to decay. Finally, the video recommends the use of sealants for both adults and children. They provide an easy way to help protect your teeth.
