Dental sealants are small, protective shells that are painted onto the surfaces of your teeth. They are generally meant to fight the creation of cavities on the back molars. This is important because the back molars tend to have deep pits and fissures that trap food particles and plaque and they are also difficult to clean. With the help of dental sealants, the bacteria in your mouth will no longer have access to your tooth enamel. To find out if dental sealants in College Station, Texas, are right for you, call our office at 979-846-0082 and schedule an appointment with Dr. Parker Long.
