Dr. Massey believes that sealants are the most significant “dental invention” of our lifetime!
Did you know that according to the American Dental Association, dental sealants on permanent molars reduce the risk of cavities by 80%? A dental sealant is a protective coating that we apply to the grooved areas of a tooth to help provide a barrier. This helps so that bacteria and food particles cannot settle in the deeper areas of a tooth.
We start evaluating for sealants as the six-year molars come in. Sealants are painless, fast, and easy to apply with a bit of cooperation from our littlest krewe members, and they do not require any numbing anesthetic or drilling.
