Combatting the effects of tooth decay is essential to keep your smile safe. One highly effective preventive measure that can be used is with dental sealants. When applied to a tooth, it can help limit tooth decay by as much as 80%.

In order to ensure your oral health care is at its best, consider preventive treatments to help prevent future oral ailments from occurring. This includes painting dental sealants on the chewing surfaces of teeth to help prevent tooth decay from arising. Dental sealants are safe to use for children and can be placed on their molars as soon as they erupt above the gum line. This means that children as young as six can have highly effective dental sealant protection plans in place. Studies have shown that children with sealants are three times less likely to develop cavities on protected teeth. In addition, sealants go on clear and strong and can easily provide a decade of protection.
