Dental sealants are usually recommended to protect the molars from bacteria, decay and infection. A sealants consists of clear or tooth-colored resin material. This material is painted onto the chewing surface of the tooth, where it forms a clear coating over the tooth that blocks out decay-causing bacteria and food debris. This smooth coating also makes it easier to effectively clean your teeth with normal brushing.
Sealants are most frequently recommended for children when their permanent molars come in (between the ages of 6 and 12). Sealants last for several years once placed, working to protect the teeth during critical years of development. Our dentists may also recommend sealants for adults who are at greater risk of tooth decay.
