The Importance of Prevention

Preventative dentistry – brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings with a dental hygienist – are indispensable for keeping your smile bright and free of tooth decay. There are some places, however, where enamel damage can occur even with dedicated oral hygiene.

Keeping Molars Clean

The very back of the mouth, where the premolars and molars are, is the most difficult area to brush and floss. Deep pits in molars and spaces between teeth are the perfect environment for decay to flourish. Food and bacteria that is lodged in pits of molars and spaces between teeth create acid that has direct contact with tooth enamel and immediately goes to work.

Extra Protection for Molars

While brushing frequently is important, an additional safeguard against decay is the application of dental sealants. Dental sealants are a plastic barrier applied to the teeth. The sealants are placed over the top of each tooth, to prohibit bacteria and plaque having direct contact with the tooth.

Many parents get sealants for their children and teens, and adults are having them applied, too. After sealants are on, they will be examined at each visit and reapplied as required.
