Protective Dental Sealants in Livingston for Decay Prevention

The chewing surfaces of back teeth have vulnerable pits and grooves where food and bacteria easily become trapped, eventually destroying enamel and forming cavities. Dental sealants offer an enamel shield to protect these sites. Livingston Dental Group provides quick, painless sealant application for children and adults prone to decay.
