With a small bit of help from oral sealants, you can keep your molars working fantastically, free from cavities and tooth decay. Here’s a little bit of info on oral sealants for you and how they work. If you have more inquiries after reviewing this post, feel free to ask them to us during your next checkup
Tooth sealants, which guard your pearly whites from damaging bacterial acids and tooth decay, function pretty simply. Imagine a raincoat. The rain falls on it, but due to the special substance on the coat, the rain slips right off. Like the raincoat, the dental sealant is fashioned using a special material, but it fights bacteria and tooth decay instead of rain. While cavity-triggering acids would typically be cutting holes in your molars, these holes (cavities) won’t grow as fast when you have an oral sealant on your tooth. Without the sealant, cavities will be much more likely to develop. With or without the sealant, it’s still central to brush your pearly whites two times daily and floss at least once a day.
