Dental Sealants Help to Prevent Tooth Decay

Dental sealants provide a protective barrier against bacteria, but here are three additional takeaway points:

  • Sealants will help to prevent an existing cavity from becoming more severe.
  • They protect your teeth from wear and tear.
  • Sealants are often use to address areas that are difficult to brush and floss.

“Dental sealants can be an excellent addition to brushing and flossing when it comes to keeping your teeth healthy and cavity-free.”
