Dental Sealants

Young Dental Care -Aurora IL

Dental sealants act as a barrier, protecting the teeth against decay-causing bacteria.

 

The sealants are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where decay occurs most often.

 

Thorough brushing and flossing help remove food particles and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth but toothbrush bristles cannot reach all the way into the depressions and grooves to extract food and plaque.

 

Sealants protect these vulnerable areas by "sealing out" plaque and food.
