If you have struggled with severe tooth decay and poor oral hygiene, you might want to think about having oral sealants applied to your molars. What are oral sealants? Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to your chompers to avert excessive tooth decay. They are made of plastic, and they will rest on your chompers and keep bacteria at bay. Sealants have been shown to lessen the risk of tooth break down in molars by about 80%. According to an October 2016 report by the Center for Disease Control, children with dental sealants have about three times as fewer cavities as those without. So if you want to protect your chompers, sealants could be the method to go!
