To protect the molars and premolars, where dental decay occurs most often, our dentist may suggest dental sealants in Plantsville, Connecticut. By covering up the grooves and pits of these chewing surfaces, a sealant will block out any germs and food that could cause decay, therefore preventing the need for fillings. Please contact Plantsville Family Dental today to learn more about sealants and to schedule your next visit with Dr. Thomas L. DeRienzo.
A sealant is a preventive dental treatment that our DMD may recommend to protect your teeth from decay. A dental sealant is made of a clear or tooth-colored resin material, which is painted onto the chewing surface of the tooth. By blocking out the bacteria and food debris that lead to tooth decay, the sealant prevents decay and cavities. The dental sealant forms a smooth surface over the natural pits and grooves of the tooth surface, which also makes it easier to effectively clean your teeth with normal brushing.
