Sealants are used to protect your teeth from tooth decay. A dental sealant is a resin coating applied to the tooth surface. The pits and grooves of the back molars are common sites of tooth decay; a dental sealant creates a smooth surface that blocks bacteria and food particles that cause decay. The smooth surface created by the dental sealant is also easier to keep clean. Dental sealants can be applied in just one short, comfortable visit to our dental office in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. To further discover the benefits of dental sealants, we invite you to call or visit us at Total Dental Fitness today!
