Your teeth can be more or less susceptible to decay depending on where they are located within the mouth. For instance, your premolars and molars (the back teeth) are typically harder to reach with the toothbrush and floss. Their deep pits and grooves along the chewing surfaces are also likely targets for food particles to become trapped in.
At Premier Dental Care, Dr. Bakhtyari offers dental sealants as a simple and effective preventive service that can provide your smile with greater protection. The sealants themselves will be painted directly onto the chewing surfaces of your teeth, creating a barrier that prevents harmful bacteria from settling in place. As a result, patients who have experienced extreme sensitivity to dental decay in the past can enjoy improved oral health and fewer cavities.
