Dental sealants are  material coatings used to fill in deep grooves and pits in teeth that can harbor bacteria. Sealants are applied to healthy chewing surfaces of the teeth to prevent decay and cavities – especially among children. According to the experts, tooth decay affects more than half of children ages 6 – 8, and, even more, older children and teens. By applying sealants, families can prevent decay and save on the costs associated with filling cavities. If you plan to get dental sealants, the expert recommends doing so shortly after the molars have erupted from the gums – usually beginning around age 6.

Dental sealants can last up to 10 years in the average patient.
Many parents choose sealants for their kids because it is more affordable and less invasive to prevent cavities than it is to treat irreversible dental decay.

Sealants are white or clear in color, making them virtually invisible when talking, smiling or eating. Dental sealants cover approximately 90 percent of the tooth structure and are 100 percent effective when fully preserved on the teeth.
