Even when a patient brushes and flosses their teeth properly, it can be hard to remove all of the plaque and food from the nooks of the molars and premolars. This missed plaque and food can cause decay. To protect your teeth from decay, Dr. Borys Averbukh may recommend dental sealants
in Sarasota, Florida
. Dental sealant is a plastic coating that is painted onto the chewing surfaces of the molars and premolars by our dentist. When it hardens, the dental sealant will seal out plaque and food. This protects your teeth from decay. In most cases, children and teenagers have dental sealants placed when their molars and premolars grow in. Adults can also benefit from dental sealants if they have no decay or dental fillings in their molars and premolars.
