Because dental sealants can be easily applied in one appointment and offer huge benefits, their use is incredibly common. If you are looking to develop a better understanding of what dental sealants are and how they can help you, check out this educational video clip.
By watching this video, you will learn about the most common sources of cavities: deep pits and fissures along the chewing surfaces of teeth, which sealants cover in an effort to prevent decay. By blocking areas where plaque often accumulates, calculus and cavities can be prevented. While sealants can be helpful, they are neither infallible nor permanent. Occasionally, micro-leakage can occur.
Even if you have sealants applied to your teeth, it’s important to visit your dentist for regular cleanings and examinations. To arrange an appointment with an experienced Manhattan dentist, call Dr. Kenn Kakosian, D.D.S., P.C. at (212) 661-0949.
