About 70% of caries are born at the level of the grooves of the teeth. Sealing it dental is to cover these furrows with a resin, which behaves like a protective varnish. The installation of resin prevents the development of bacteria (which are the main causes of tooth decay), especially in areas that are inaccessible with the toothbrush. This technique is an ideal prevention tool for children from 6 years old or at the onset of first permanent molars.
However, sealers may be effective for all people and all ages. The benefits of dental sealants: prevent plaque to adhere to the deep furrows, prevent the development of caries, and protect teeth to distant localities, areas that the toothbrush is difficult to achieve, cover the furrows, wells and dental in which cracks accumulate bacteria and food.
