Keeping the teeth healthy can require more than just brushing, flossing, and visiting your dental office twice a year. Preventative dentistry is an area of dental work focusing on oral health and wellness in a proactive manner, and not a “reactive” manner. Certain treatments, such as dental sealants, can protect the smile from tooth decay.

What are dental sealants?

Dental sealants are a specialized “coating” that is applied onto the surfaces of the teeth by a dental professional at Caldwell, Bills, Petrilli and West Dentistry. These sealants are used for filling in the narrow grooves and pits on the teeth that may not be adequately cleaned with brushing alone. These areas are notorious for accumulating plaque, and not necessarily because the patient is not brushing properly, but because they are too narrow for the bristles to really clean the area. Cavities can form in these areas, and to combat this, dental sealants can be applied to keep the teeth healthy.
