Dental Sealants

Protective dental sealants are like force fields for the back teeth, sealing them off from cavity-causing acids.

Powerful cavity prevention

Protective dental sealants are a simple, affordable and incredibly effective way to prevent cavities. We recommend sealing the permanent molars and premolars as soon as they come in, usually around age 6 and, again, at age 12. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), dental sealants can prevent up to 80% of cavities in kids’ back teeth for several years after being applied.

Getting Dental Sealants is Easy Peasy

Your San Diego pediatric dentist will paint a thin, clear, BPA-free layer on the chewing surfaces of your child’s back teeth. The process only takes a few minutes and is well tolerated. The sealant will form a protective barrier, preventing food debris, bacteria and acids from getting into the pits and grooves of these teeth and causing cavities.
