Sealants: Sealants are a great way to protect against tooth decay and cavities on your child’s back teeth (molars). These are the teeth that are most vulnerable to cavities and decay because they are used in the chewing process, and are the most difficult to reach and clean. Molars first come in at around 5-7 years of age, with a second set coming in between the ages of 11-14. It is best to have a sealant placed when the molars first come in to ensure they are protected early. The sealant creates a barrier between the tooth and any plaque, food particles, and bacteria. Sealants last for about 10 years and can be reapplied if necessary.
