Dental sealants are a great tool for preventing cavities in hard-to-reach areas and on teeth that have deep crevices. They are typically recommended for children between ages 6 and 14.
Dental sealants are made from specially designed dental resin or plastic. They are carefully applied in liquid form onto the back teeth in a thin layer. The sealant then quickly hardens and bonds directly onto the tooth, sometimes with the aid of a curing light. Sealants can remain effective for as long as a decade, but they still should be checked for wear during every dental check-up.
