Many people have deep grooves on the biting surface of their molars. These deep grooves can become a gathering place for bacteria and plaque, which can lead to serious tooth damage. Dr. Chad Howe at Howe Dental recommends that patients with deep grooves receive dental sealants to level off their teeth’s biting surface and protect them against decay. Dental sealants are also highly recommended for children who have received their permanent teeth, as this will provide added protection while your child continues growing. For more information about how receiving dental sealants in Roy, Utah, can protect your smile, please schedule an appointment with our dentist by calling us at 801-776-1240.
