Dental Sealants Protect Children's Permanent Teeth
Dental sealants are easy to apply, painless and are very good in preventing dental cavities in children who don't always do a good job in brushing their teeth. Sealants are made of the same material that white fillings are made of, dental compososite which is painted onto the teeth like nail polish. The sealant protects the pits and fissures on the occlusal surfaces of the tooth. If a child does not have the dexterity to brush well, then this is a great way to help prevent against decay while the child develops better brushing techniques. They can also be useful in adults.
