Dental sealants are a preventive measure that we use at Port Coquitlam dental practice Oxford Family Dental. They are typically placed on the back molars where patients are more susceptible to cavities and plaque buildup. A plastic material is placed on the chewing surfaces of your back death to prevent cavities from forming. Most patients who receive dental sealants do so because they have a family or personal history of dental issues, they have poor plaque control, they have deep recessive pits, or they have enamel defects, among other things. Please consult with your Port Coquitlam dental office if you’re looking to have dental sealants used as a preventative measure.
