Dental sealants are an effective way to prevent cavities. The application of the sealant prevents plaque from spreading through the grooves and fissures in the teeth. These areas, which cannot be reached by brushing, are conducive to bacterial growth. Although dental sealants are strongly recommended for children ages 6 and up, patients of all ages can reap the benefits of this preventive treatment.
