No matter how diligently you brush, rinse, and floss, it’s inevitable that some plaque and food will get captured in the deep grooves of a tooth’s chewing surface. At Dental Care East Hanover, our dentists use sealants to fill those grooves and prevent cavities from forming.
Sealants are made from medical-grade plastic, which guard your teeth against acids and plaques that can cause cavities. Often placed on the chewing surface of molars, sealants are created by painting the tooth with a special material that sticks onto its exterior. The process is simple yet proven to be highly effective at cavity prevention.
Sealants are recommended for adults as well as children to help prevent cavities, and can easily be done at our office in East Hanover, New Jersey.
