Tips for sealants

The first step in having healthy teeth is preventing tooth decay. Sealants can protect your child’s teeth against cavities.

A sealant is a thin plastic coating that is placed on the chewing surface of the back teeth. Sealants keep food and bacteria away from the grooves of these teeth. Sealants will protect the teeth from plaque and acids. Plaque can change the sugar and starch from food into harmful acids that attack the teeth and cause cavities. Sealants protect the grooves of the back teeth by sealing out the plaque, food, and acids.
