Dental Sealants in the Bronx, New York
Dental sealants are a thin coating applied to protect teeth from decay. Most often applied to the back teeth, dental sealants are recommended for children and teenagers in order to prevent tooth decay. We recommend that sealants be placed on the back teeth as soon as they come in, which is typically between the ages of six and twelve. Your Bronx dentist, Dr. Vasserman, may also suggest dental sealants to adult patients who are prone to tooth decay. The sealant is applied to the grooves of the back molars to block bacteria and food particles and to create a smooth surface that is easier to clean. We invite you to call us at Pelham Dental Group to discover the benefits of dental sealants and preventive dentistry.
