Even with proper brushing and flossing, it can be difficult to remove the plaque and food particles from the grooves in your back teeth. This plaque and food can cause tooth decay. If you would like to protect your teeth or your child’s teeth from decay, ask Dr. Charles Peter about dental sealants in Clearwater, Florida. Dental sealant is a thin material that is painted on the chewing surfaces of the molars and premolars to prevent tooth decay. The sealant bonds into the grooves of the tooth and hardens in place, thus sealing out plaque and food particles.
