The Benefits of Dental Sealants

Dentists often recommend dental sealants for young children and patients prone to excessive tooth decay. Covering the molars in sealants can help reduce or prevent the development of cavities that could lead to root canal infections. Read on for a better look at the benefits that come with dental sealants.

As seen in the video, there are tiny pits and fissures on teeth that cannot be reached by a traditional toothbrush. Dentists place dental sealants over these areas to block bacteria from growing and causing infections and decay. Sealants can last for several years, but a dentist should always inspect the sealants for defects and bacteria growth. Daily oral hygiene and nutrition should also be followed to prevent tooth decay.
