Are you tired of getting cavities? Dental sealants can help! These are coatings placed on the surfaces of your molars which give your teeth an extra layer of protection. Here are some fun facts about the virtues of dental sealants:

-Dental sealants are especially effective for children. In fact, dentists typically recommended getting them placed on a child’s permanent molars when they begin to grow in around the age of 6.

-Children that do not have sealants are over 3 times more likely to have cavities.

-Dental sealants are clear, so they will in no way interfere with the look of your smile.

-Dental sealants can adhere directly to the affected areas of your smile so as to improve your oral health without concealing your teeth.

-Dental sealants can usually last over a decade. They can lower the risk for tooth decay by as much as 80%.
