How Sealants Help Prevent Cavities

Although brushing and flossing are the best ways to prevent cavities, it’s not always easy to clean every nook and cranny of your teeth. Molars are rough and groovy and are a favorite place for cavity-causing bacteria to hide. Sealants are another way to protect the grooves in your teeth.

Sealants offer a cost effective way to help prevent decay on permanent molars. In most situations, the cost of a sealant is much less than the cost to treat decay with a filling. Your hygienist would love to discuss sealants with you at your next appointment, or feel free to call in to the office at 419-475-3494 to discuss this treatment option.
