Sealants are a common preventive treatment for people whose teeth build up plaque.
Did you know that some teeth have fine grooves or pits that accumulate plaque even when a person is good at brushing? That's because the grooves are too narrow to allow even one bristle into them. When plaque accumulates, it can lead to cavities and other types of tooth decay. To apply sealants, The Dentist in Newark will brush a plastic material onto the tooth, filling these narrow grooves and preventing buildup. Sealants make healthy teeth possible.
