At Patrick Toms DMD, we understand that every tooth is unique and presents a new set of challenges to keep it healthy. Sometimes teeth have narrow grooves or pits that naturally occur in them. The small size and hard-to-reach locations of these grooves and pits makes it difficult, if not impossible, to adequately clean these areas with a regular toothbrush. As a result, plaque builds up and makes these teeth prone to developing cavities.
To prevent cavities from forming, the dentists and staff at Patrick Toms DMD place sealant in these grooves and pits. The sealant seals off these areas making it possible to brush off all the plaque and keep your teeth healthy.
Patrick Toms DMD is a leading dentist in Gainesville, Georgia, who provides patients with sealants to help eliminate pain and restore tooth functionality. Please contact us
to set up an appointment to see if sealants are right for you.
