Run your tongue across the chewing surface of your molars. Can you feel all the bumps and grooves called “pits and fissures”? Well, these areas just so happen to be perfect for trapping food and plaque, which can cause tooth decay. Although brushing twice a day and flossing regularly helps protect your teeth from cavities, oftentimes toothbrush bristles can’t quite reach into these pits and fissures leaving them covered in plaque. This is where dental sealants can help.
Dental sealants fill in pits and fissures, eliminating areas that are unreachable by brushing. These sealants are applied in liquid form to effectively fill crevices, which then quickly hardens to protect your teeth.
