When bacteria can’t get into tiny grooves, teeth stay healthier! Dental sealants are a great preventative measure for our dental care. Especially useful with kids, they are applied to tooth grooves to seal bacteria out. Toothbrushes can’t reach these grooves so the best way to prevent cavities is to seal the area from bacteria with a sealant.
In our Totowa area dental practice, Dr. Martin or Dr. Ferraiolo place sealants to prevent bacteria from forming in the first place. Children may be eating more sweet foods and brushing less diligently or less often than adults, so a sealant is especially beneficial for them. We do place this preventive treatment on adult teeth as well.
I love everyone at this office. Dr. Martin and Dr. Ferraiolo have a wonderful staff and all are very professional.
