Dental Sealants

The grooves that form the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars) are extremely difficult to clean of bacteria and food, even with thorough and regular brushing and flossing. As bacteria reacts with leftover food particles, acids form and break down the tooth enamel, resulting in cavities. This is where dental sealants come in.

Dental sealants protect these vulnerable areas by sealing the grooves, preventing bacteria and food particles from accumulating. The sealants are made of a resin material that is applied to the back teeth, molars, premolars, and any area prone to cavities. Sealants last for several years but need to be checked during regular appointments. That’s why it’s important to keep up with your regular dental visits here at Wachtel Dentistry.
