We recommend sealants on all permanent molars for your school-age kids.
Your back molars are rough, uneven and a favorite place for leftover food and cavity-causing bacteria to hide. Brushing and flossing are the best ways to ways to help prevent cavities.
There is another safety net to help keep those teeth clean. It’s called a sealant, and it is a thin, protective coating that adheres to the chewing surface of your back teeth. Sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of decay by nearly 80% in molars. This is especially important when it comes to your child’s dental health.
