If you have struggled with tooth decay and poor oral hygiene, you might want to think about having dental sealants fitted to your molars. What are dental sealants? Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to your teeth to avert tooth erosion. They are comprised of plastic, and they will sit on your chompers and keep bacteria at bay. Sealants have been proven to diminish the risk of tooth decay by about 80%. According to an October 2016 report by the Center for Disease Control, children with oral sealants have about three times as fewer cavities as those without sealants. So if you want to guard your chompers, sealants could be the way to go!
