The chewing surface of the molars and premolars have grooves which can sometimes be deep and too narrow for you to brush clean. These are very susceptible sites for cavities to start and spread below the surface of the tooth. Preventative resin restorations and sealants are placed into these deep grooves to seal them from food and bacteria. This lowers your chance of decay and loosing much more tooth structure.
Preventative fillings are advisable for children, teens or adults, and they can last many years. If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, please feel free to contact us.
