What are Dental Sealants?
Dental sealants are hardened plastic shields that are placed on the chewing surface of your child’s molars and pre-molars — the back teeth — to seal the tooth surface and help keep food and bacteria from causing cavities.
Do Dental Sealants really work?
Yes! In one study, kids who received a sealant treatment had half the tooth decay of children who brushed regularly but didn’t have sealants.
Do they look natural?
Sealants match the exact color of your child’s teeth so no one will be able to see them.
Who can apply a sealant and how long do they last?
Sealants are quick and easy to apply and can be done by a trained dental hyginest. They typically last from 5 to 10 years, so if you want to give your child’s molars the best protection against potential cavities, dental sealants are a great place to start.
