Your back molars can harbor bacteria that is often difficult to reach with a toothbrush. They feature pits and fissures where food can hide. Prevent decay from developing by receiving dental sealants for those hard-to-reach teeth. Dental sealants are plastic resin coatings that fill microscopic gaps making it difficult for bacteria to invade. Dental sealants are commonly used in children’s mouths since their teeth are more vulnerable to decay than adults. However, for added protection, many adults receive sealants as well.
