You have probably noticed that your back teeth, or molars, have ridges on them. These ridges are known as cusps and their job is to help you chew your food. While they do that very well, those same cusps also trap the food debris and plaque that can lead to tooth decay and infections. You can protect those back teeth when you call Howe Dental Associates at 973-365-1931 for an appointment for dental sealants in Passaic, New Jersey. Our dentist, Dr. Michael Weiner, will be happy to see you or your child.
