Protecting your smile against the risk of tooth decay can be done with dental sealants. Dental sealants are safe to be applied and can be used at any age whenever molars begin to grow in. If you require additional oral health care prevention of dental erosion and tooth decay, consider the use of a dental sealant treatment.

If you wish for an alternative oral health care treatment, consider the use of dental sealants to help provide an additional layer of protection for your teeth. A single application of dental sealants on the chewing surfaces of teeth can lower your risk of tooth decay by as much as 80%. In addition, dental sealants are safe for children. This means that as young as six years old, children can have dental sealants placed on their molars as soon as they erupt above the gum line. Studies done by the CDC have shown that children with sealants in place are three times less likely to develop any symptoms of cavities on protected teeth. Furthermore, dental sealants are extremely durable and can easily last up to 10 years.
