For most people, the biting surface of your molars has deep grooves and crevices. These grooves make it easy for bacteria and plaque to build up, as they are cannot be easily cleaned with a toothbrush. To help protect your teeth, Dr. Copenhaver, Dr. Hood, and Dr. Bordlemay are pleased to provide dental sealants. This simple, quick, and painless procedure involves our dentists using a tooth-colored resin that fills in the grooves and bonds to your tooth. Dental sealants are durable, and can last for many years. In most cases, our team at Copenhaver Dental recommend that children receive dental sealants once their permanent teeth come in. For more information and to schedule your appointment, we welcome you to contact us at 912-756-2936.
