Did you know...why sealing a tooth is better than waiting for decay and filling the cavity?
Facts: Sealants may reduce occlusal (chewing surface) decay by as much as 65%.
Decay damages teeth permanently. Each time a tooth is filled, more drilling is done, making the tooth a little weaker. The dental sealant product that we use does not contain Bisphenol A (BPA). Sealants are never bad when done well.
The following is a list of considerations things that Dentists and Hygienists consider before placing sealants:
1. Is there previous decay experience?
2. How “groovy” are the teeth?
