Dental Sealants in Lower Manhattan
Our general and pediatric dentists typically recommend dental sealants for younger patients who are still learning how to properly keep teeth clean. There are certain areas of the mouth that are hard-to-reach, especially the chewing surfaces of premolars and molars, which can attract food particles and decay-causing bacteria. Dental sealants are applied to these vulnerable spots as a protective shield, blocking threats and helping reduce cavities. Their placement may also benefit adults who struggle with teeth that are highly sensitive to tooth decay.
