While brushing and flossing certainly are the best ways to prevent cavities, it’s hard to reach every nook and cranny of your teeth. This is especially true for your back teeth, commonly called molars.

Dental sealants are a great way to avoid the development of cavities. To prepare for sealant application, each of your teeth will be cleaned. Then, they are individually dried, and cotton will be placed in order to absorb lingering water. An acidic solution will be applied to your teeth that will make your teeth gritty.
This aids in sealant application with rougher enamel. The teeth are rinsed and dried once again. Sealant material is applied directly to your tooth’s enamel and filled into the grooves of your teeth. The sealant is hardened with a low-density light for maximum security.
