Sealants are a protective coating applied to the back teeth protecting against the decaying effects of bacteria in the mouth. Back teeth have irregular surfaces which make them ideal for chewing and grinding. They also have pits and fissures (deep grooves), which make them susceptible to decay. Sealants are used to fill in the deep grooves of the teeth by placing a protective barrier between the tooth and bacteria to prevent decay. Dr. Hans Guter is pleased to offer services for dental sealants in Circleville, Ohio.
