Dental sealants are a clear protective coating that is applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth. The sealant protects the tooth from getting a cavity by shielding it against bacteria and plaque. Dr. Russell Taylor most commonly place sealants on children’s permanent teeth because they are more prone to cavities. We welcome you to call Taylor Dentistry at 602-957-0075 to learn more about the benefits of dental sealants in Phoenix, Arizona, and to schedule an appointment with our dentist.
