Would you like to know the advantages that dental sealants can provide? Are you aware that dental sealants are safe for almost any age beginning at six when a child’s first set of molars begin to grow in? Dental sealants are applied directly to your tooth enamel for an additional layer of protection.
A dental sealant is placed on your back teeth and then hardened with a light source. Once the sealant has hardened, your teeth will be stronger and better protected. A typical sealant can remain in place for about a decade before it needs to be repaired or reapplied. Sealants are safe for adults and children.
For the best result, sealants should be placed when a child begins to get their first molars. According to studies done by the Centers for Disease Control, children without sealants are three times more likely to have cavities in childhood.
