Pit And Fissure Sealants: Why Your Child Might Need Them

What Are Sealants?

Dental sealants are a protective clear plastic layer brushed onto the chewing surfaces of teeth to “seal them off” from plaque and bacteria that would cause cavities to form. Dentists started using sealants in the 1960s, and they’ve been popular ever since. The best time to bring your child in for dental sealants is around when their adult molars erupt, which is usually at age six. The sealant application process is quick and painless!
