We can help
- Prevent tooth decay in children by almost 80%.
How this works
Dental professionals come to schools to apply sealants, thin plastic coatings to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars, which is where most tooth decay in childern and teens occurs). Sealants protect the chewing surfaces from decay by keeping germs and pieces of food. out. Sealants are best placed on the first and second adult molars as soon as they come in - usually around the age of 13.
