If your smile is at risk for future dental damage, it is important to understand which forms can destroy your smile and which ones you are vulnerable for. Many individuals are often vulnerable to dental erosion and tooth decay. For this reason, preventive treatments such as dental sealants need to be applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth to limit their risks.

If you wish to add a supplemental treatment to your oral health care, consider dental sealants to act as an additional layer of protection to coat your tooth enamel. They go on strong and can easily last up to 10 years of solid use. Dental sealants are effective as they are resistant to tooth decay and can help prevent cavities from arising. A single application of dental sealants can lower your risk for tooth decay by as much as 80%. Furthermore, studies have shown that children with sealants are three times less likely to develop cavities. Because they are safe and effective for young children, they can even be placed on children as soon as their molars begin to appear.
