Cavity Prevention

Dr. Ghada S. Massabni and the entire staff at Agape Dentist work hard to stop any cavities before they begin to develop. We are dedicated to the residence in Woburn, MA and the surrounding areas. To prevent cavities from forming, it is important to have a dental sealant.

A sealant is a preventative dental treatment that Dr. Massabni uses to protect your teeth from decay. It is made of a clear or tooth-colored resin material and paints onto the chewing surface of the tooth. The sealant blocks bacteria and food debris that leads to tooth decay. The sealant prevents decay and cavities and will form a smooth surface from the natural pits and grooves of the tooth surface. This also makes it easier to effectively clean your teeth daily.

Dental sealants are typically recommended for children. Dr. Massabni recommends sealants for permanent molars as soon as they appear. This is usually between the ages of six and twelve. We also recommend dental sealants for adults that have teeth prone to decay or for teeth that have not been restored or suffered from decay in the past.

Our friendly and qualified staff will apply the sealant during a visit to our practice. Sealants are very powerful in preventing decay and keeping your smile healthy. We will be happy to answer any questions that you have regarding cavity prevention at anytime. We are conveniently located near Woburn High School in the heart of Woburn.
