Sealants in Salinas, CA
Sealants are a common preventive treatment at Salinas Valley Dental Care.
Some teeth have fine grooves or pits that accumulate plaque, not because the person doesn't brush, but because the grooves are too narrow to allow even one bristle into them. Sealants can help prevent cavities from forming in these deep grooves. When plaque accumulates, it can lead to cavities and other types of tooth decay. To apply sealants, Dr. Chao or Dr. Bui will apply a plastic material to the tooth, filling these narrow grooves and preventing the cavity-causing buildup.Back
