What are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are a preventive treatment designed to protect your child’s teeth from cavities and tooth decay. Sealants are made of clear or tooth-colored resin material. This resin material is painted onto the chewing surfaces of the teeth, where it forms a smooth coating over the tooth, including the natural pits and grooves of the tooth surface. This helps shield the tooth from decay-causing bacteria, plaque and food debris to keep it strong and healthy. Additionally, dental sealants make it easier for your child to keep their teeth clean with regular brushing and flossing.

Who is Eligible for Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are typically recommended when your child’s permanent molars come in (between the ages of 6 and 12). Dental sealants may need to be applied several times, depending on your child’s risk of developing cavities and their oral growth and development. Sealants last for several years after they are applied, providing long-term protection as your child grows and develops. Sealants are especially useful if your child is prone to developing cavities. Sealants can be applied in just a few minutes during your child’s regular dental visits.
