Preventative Services - Sealants


One way to protect children's teeth is by having enamel sealants placed. Enamel sealants are whitish plastic coatings for the chewing surfaces of the molars where there may be tiny grooves and pits. The plastic coat keeps the bacterial plaque and food out of these areas since they might cause dental decay. They are usually placed on a child's permanent back teeth or molars as soon as the crown top has fully erupted into the mouth. The average age for this process is initially around 6-7 years and then later, at around 12-14 years. Some adults may benefit from this treatment also.
