Dental sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth, where tooth decay occurs most often, to seal out the germs and food that cause decay. Our dentists, Dr. Abernathy may recommend having a sealant placed as soon as the permanent molars erupt in order to prevent tooth decay as early as possible. Please call us at Lakeland Dental Care for more information about how a dental sealant in Jackson, Mississippi, can help your family maintain good oral health.
