In honor of February and National Children’s Dental Health Month, we asked our hygienist, Yee Fong, “Talk about dental sealants. Does Dr. Gasper suggest them?”
“Dental sealants are a great preventative measure against tooth decay!
Due to the natural anatomic patterns of our teeth, we all have pits and fissures (on the chewing surface) which bacteria love to harbor in. With a simple procedure, which does not involve anesthetic we place a plastic resin over these pits/fissures (on molars and premolars) to create a smooth surface, along with a self cleansing surface to prevent decay.
Dental sealants are not only beneficial for children, but for adults as well!”
