It is pretty obvious that your back teeth look very different than your other teeth. They have ridges called cusps on them, which are designed to help you chew your food. While they are great at their jobs, those cusps are also great at trapping food particles and plaque that your toothbrush cannot reach. To protect your tooth enamel, our dentists, Dr. Chelsea Longlet and Dr. Michael Longlet, may suggest dental sealants.
