Our back teeth—our molars and premolars—are designed to crush and chew food before we swallow. Because of this, these teeth are often exposed to the greatest wear and tear in our mouth. They also have grooves called fissures that our toothbrushes can't clean. Because of these reasons, these back teeth are particularly susceptible to cavities and other dental issues.
One of the most effective ways to protect these back teeth is to apply what is known as dental sealant. At Dental House, our knowledgeable, experienced Albuquerque family dentists can inspect your back teeth for vulnerabilities and, if needed, recommend and provide an effective dental sealant treatment.
Want to learn more about our dental sealant treatments? Contact our offices at (505) 835-2322 today. We accept most insurance plans and both Medicaid.
Dental sealant is a plastic coating that goes over the chewing surfaces of our back teeth to fill the fissures and prevent plaque and bacteria from causing cavities. The sealant acts as a barrier over these fissures and blocks the plaque and bacteria from reaching the crevasses that regular brushing cannot reach.
Sealant treatment is one of the most easily endured and effective dental treatments available to patients today. If you are interested in exploring your dental sealant options, Dental House is ready to assist you. Our friendly, knowledgeable dental health professionals can walk you through the process and provide you with a noninvasive sealant treatment that will safeguard your teeth for years to come.
