Does your child do a good job of brushing, yet he or she always seems to have a cavity when visiting the dentist? Believe it or not, sometimes cavities don't have anything to do with how well or often one brushes and flosses!
Some teeth have fine grooves or pits that accumulate plaque, not because the person doesn't brush, but because the grooves are too narrow to allow even one bristle into them. When plaque accumulates, it can lead to cavities and other types of tooth decay.
Sealants are a plastic material that is brushed onto a tooth, filling these narrow grooves and preventing the cavity-causing buildup. Sealants make healthy teeth possible and are a great preventive measure in dentistry.
