Interested in additional prevention against cavities and tooth decay? Bowtie Dental in Grand Rapids, MI offers sealants to our patients if desired or necessary. Sealants are composed of a plastic material that are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. They act as an aid in keeping the back teeth clean and free of plaque and bacteria, since the depression and grooves of the chewing surfaces of the back teeth can be difficult to protect from brushing and flossing alone. Sealants bond into the pits and fissures and act as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids. This makes it easier for you to maintain your healthy teeth and smile.
Sometimes it’s safest to take that extra precaution against unwanted dental procedures down the line. Dr. Langellier is happy to explain more about sealants to his clients and recommend them if he sees fit.
