Did you know that dental sealants are designed to improve your smile in more ways than one? Sealants can even protect teeth from future damage before the ravages of time and age can begin to do their worst. The secrets of dental sealants can be seen below:

– Dental sealants can protect your teeth by ensuring harmful acids in your mouth cannot penetrate your tooth enamel.

– You can reduce the risk of tooth decay in your mouth by 80% with dental sealants.

– A single dental sealant can provide long-lasting protection for years, up to a decade before they may need to be reapplied or replaced.

– Although sealants are not recommended for infants, they can be placed in children as young as six, as they are most beneficial for molars, which happen to grow in when a child is around six years of age.

– Dental sealants can ensure children are 3 times less likely to develop a cavity.

– Sealants are beneficial for the look of your teeth, as they are clear and will not change the natural look of your smile.
