Because our back teeth are more susceptible to decay, many people request dental sealants to help protect these teeth.
A dental sealant is a liquid that is placed on the chewing surface of the patient’s molars. A special light is used to dry the surface and this helps keep them protected from decay by covering the grooves of the teeth. Dental sealants are acceptable for both adults and children and can last several years.
It is important to remember that dental sealants do not take the place of proper brushing and flossing. If you are interested in you or your child receiving dental sealants, contact Dr. Cochran’s office today.
