Cavity Prevention in Liverpool, NY
Along with daily brushing and flossing, sealants are one of the best methods of preventing tooth decay. Sealants are thin coatings of plastic that cover your molars and guard them against cavity formation.
Why are Sealants Placed on the Molars?
The molars are the teeth that are most prone to cavities. They contain deep grooves where food can easily become trapped. Plus, the molars are at the back of your mouth where it can be difficult to reach with dental floss and a toothbrush.
Are Sealants Just for Children?
Although sealants are especially important for kids, adults of any age can also benefit from sealants.
Are Sealants Painful?
Absolutely not! There are no injections or drilling needed when Dr. Pateras places sealants. You’ll also become accustomed to your sealants very quickly and soon won’t even know they are there.
