Interestingly, dentists have already considered this idea, and they have invented something that works so well: dental sealants. Tooth sealants “seal up” your teeth, preventing bacteria from causing tooth decay.
So, if you want to have the upper hand over cavities in Irvine, California, please book an appointment with Tooth Love. We offer dental sealants to preserve your smile now and for many years.
