Sealants

For many children, sealants can be helpful in getting through the candy and sugar years. These protective coatings help prevent cavities from forming on the top surfaces of the teeth.

Sealants are generally placed over the permanent molars as soon as they erupt into the mouth. This can be as young as six years of age. Baby teeth can also be sealed if your child is cooperative and at a high risk for developing decay.

Ask us if sealants on your child’s baby teeth would be appropriate.
