Sealants Help Fight Against Tooth Decay

If you are looking for a way to protect your teeth from tooth decay then we suggest dental sealants. Dental sealants are highly effective in preventing decay on biting surfaces of your chewing teeth.

The Center for Disease Control explains that, “permanent molars are the most likely to benefit from sealants. The first molars usually come into the mouth when a child is about 6 years old. Second molars appear at about age 12. It is best if the sealant is applied soon after the teeth have erupted, before they have a chance to decay.”

Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach. These sealants are easy to apply and it only takes a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed. Both children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
