Poor oral hygiene, a sugary diet, and the natural contours of molars can all contribute to tooth decay, which occurs when bacterial acids wear holes in tooth enamel because of a mineral content imbalance.
Dental sealants are a proactive approach to preventing cavities. By sealing the chewing surfaces of molars, sealants create a barrier that keeps bacteria and food debris out.
According to CDC studies, dental sealants can reduce the risk of cavities by more than 70%.
It's not just children who can benefit from sealants. Adults, especially those who are more cavity-prone, such as smokers, can also benefit from this preventive treatment.
