How can I prevent cavities?
One thing that can help prevent cavities is dental sealants. The sealants are plastic resins and they van be bonded into the fissures and pits of the tooth to make the surface smooth. By doing this, the sealants will facilitate and bristles of the tooth brush to success all areas of your tooth and remove plaque. Another problem that you could face is the thickness of the enamel layer in the fissures and pits is lesser than that in other parts of the tooth. This means that the area is not only susceptible for cavity formation but also cavities will penetrate the enamel layer in a shorter period. The teeth that are likely to be benefited by the application of this plastic coating are primarily the permanent molars. Ideally, you should get the sealant applied immediately after the eruption of teeth and this will prevent decay.
