Your molars and premolars have a tough job. They grind your food as you chew using the ridges on their surfaces, called cusps, to make your food easier to swallow and digest. While these cusps are great at helping you with your meals, they also make terrific hiding places for the plaque and food particles that create cavities. Since those tiny spaces can be tough to reach with your toothbrush, our dentist may use dental sealants to protect your back teeth. If you would like to schedule an appointment for dental sealants in Scarborough, Toronto, Ontario, for your child or even for yourself, call The Smile Team . A member of our team will be happy to help you schedule a visit with Dr. Abid Hidayat.
