What are dental sealants?

Over 80 percent of all childhood cavities occur in teeth found furthest back in young mouths. These teeth contain pits and fissures which can not be reached by toothbrushing. Here plaque bacteria proliferate and produce cavities.

Dental sealants are clear protective coatings which are applied to tooth surfaces in order to seal out cavity causing plaque bacteria. Unfortunately, many parents are unaware of the protective benefits of sealants. Making matters worse, insurance companies often don't cover the procedure. This, despite the fact, that sealants save money by preventing cavities and future dental visits.

The next time your child visits the dentist, ask about dental sealants and how they can protect young teeth.
