Dental Sealant Services in Rochester, Minnesota
Dental sealants are often recommended as a technique for good tooth decay prevention. The back teeth have numerous pits and grooves on the chewing surface, which can make cleaning difficult. Food particles and bacterial plaque can become stuck in these fissures. As a result, even with good brushing, decay can easily spread in those areas. Therefore, our dentists often recommend protecting chewing surfaces with dental sealants to prevent decay from spreading into those crevices. Dental sealants are tooth-colored plastic resins that bond and harden in the deep grooves on your tooth’s surface.
