As children start receiving their permanent teeth, the biting surface of their back teeth may have deep grooves. These can cause bacteria and plaque buildups and cause cavities. At the dental office of Summer Enlow, DDS PC, our dentist recommends that children with grooved teeth receive dental sealants. This clear protectant will smooth out the tooth’s biting surface and prevent bacteria from buildup up in the grooves and prevent cavities. To have your child receive dental sealants in Nacogdoches, Texas, please contact us at 936-564-9730 and schedule their appointment with our dentist, Dr. Summer Enlow.
