You can prevent cavity development by keeping up on oral hygiene and receiving a dental sealant. Dr. Moumen Almouzayn uses this plastic coating to seal out the decay that often develops in the teeth at the back of your mouth. Our dentist at Madison Dental Spa can give you a dental sealant in Madison, CT.
The molars and premolars are the teeth located in the back of your mouth. They are some of the strongest teeth; however, they are also the ones most vulnerable to tooth decay. This is because their chewing surface consists of deep grooves, pits and fissures that are hard to clean and easily trap food debris and plaque bacteria. Cavities often develop in these areas, but they can be prevented with a dental sealant.
A sealant is a plastic barrier that our dentist applies to the chewing surface of these teeth. She will coat the pits and fissures, protecting them from the harmful plaque which causes decay. This is a simple procedure to perform; after your teeth are cleaned, then we paint the sealant onto the area and harden it. Call our office if you want to schedule an appointment so you can receive a dental sealant that will protect the health of your smile.
