Tooth Decay Prevention in Charlotte
Dental sealants are another preventative dental treatment. One of the most common areas where a cavity will form is on the biting surface of a tooth. This is because food and bacteria are able to find their way down into the tiny grooves and fissures of the tooth. Once bacteria find their way into these grooves, the bacteria can begin to grow and cause a full-on cavity.
A dental sealant serves to seal grooves so bacteria can’t get inside. If nothing can get inside, you or your child’s chances of getting a cavity is much, much lower. Though often performed for children – dental sealants are equally effective at preventing cavities in adults.
