Your back teeth, which are also known as your molars and premolars, use ridges called cusps to help you chew your food and make it easier for you to digest. But these cusps also provide places for food debris, plaque and bacteria to build up and create tooth decay. You may have a tough time reaching these places with your toothbrush. At the office of Arnold Balber, DDS, our dentists can apply a dental sealant to your back teeth to protect your tooth enamel from the substances that can damage it. If you would like to find out if you or your child could benefit from dental sealants in Woodland Hills, call 818-348-1494 today.
