Teeth naturally develop with narrow grooves and deep pits. The bristles of a tooth brush are too large to get to the bottom of these deep grooves and pits. Dr Joshua, Naperville dentist recommends sealants to cover the molar teeth to protect the teeth from the plaque and bacteria that causes decay.
Sealants can reduce the chance of getting cavities on the biting surface of the teeth. In October 2016, The Centers For Disease Control reported that "school-age children without sealants have almost three times more cavities than children with sealants."
Sealants do not required anesthesia and can be completed in just 1 appointment.
