Did you know that by age 19, nearly 70% of kids have already had at least one cavity? Studies show that the majority of them occur in the pits and grooves of newly erupted molars. These cavities can easily be prevented with dental sealants – a fast, painless affordable solution that lasts up to 10 years.
Sealants are painted onto the chewing surfaces of teeth to block food, acid, and bacteria from getting into deep crevices. They should be applied soon after the teeth have erupted – before cavities develop.
