Every person has their own unique grooves and texture on the biting surface of their teeth. These grooves naturally trap cavity-causing bacteria. An individual toothbrush bristle is wider than the deepest part of these fissures, making it impossible to keep them clean. A dental sealant is a simple, painless way to seal these deep grooves so that cavity-causing bacteria can no longer reach them. Scottsdale dentists, Dr. Rod Gore often places sealants on teeth in adults and children as an effective way to prevent cavities. Made of a durable plastic, the sealants are placed on the top of the chewing surface of the tooth. Patients can expect the sealants to last a number of years.

Patients can anticipate returning to their regular routine immediately following the procedure. Although a sealant prevents decay from starting deep in the fissures, cavity-causing bacteria can still cause decay on other surfaces of the teeth such as along the gumline and in between. Therefore, it's important to maintain a healthy routine of flossing and brushing daily and returning for your professional cleaning and exam appointments
Sealants are a very inexpensive way of protecting your teeth from expensive restorations caused from decay. In some cases, your insurance may cover this preventative procedure
