Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a great way to prevent tooth decay. On the biting surfaces of molar teeth contain deep pits and grooves which make plaque easy to hide in and difficult to remove with a toothbrush. Sealing the molars with a dental sealant will prevent bacteria from entering these deep pits and grooves. It is recommended to place sealants on children when the first adult molar teeth are erupted at the age of six.
