Dental sealant is a plastic coating that's painted onto the chewing surfaces of teeth. Children between the ages of 6 and 14 are prone to developing cavities as their permanent molars develop. To keep this from happening, Michele Boyne Pediatric Dentistry in Rock Hill, South Carolina can apply dental sealants to help prevent tooth decay.
Your child's baby teeth might need sealants, as well. Baby teeth play an important role in holding the correct spacing for permanent teeth, and sealants can help keep baby teeth healthy and in the right positions.
