Thanks to dental technology, children don’t develop cavities as frequently as they did in previous generations. Dental sealants have prevented many kids from experiencing the pain of a tooth damaged by decay. Many of them have also missed out on the experience of getting fillings from their dentist.
According to a report from the CDC (Center for Disease Control), school children with dental sealants are three times less likely to develop cavities compared to children without sealants.
Dental sealants create a barrier between tooth enamel and plaque and prevent acid-producing bacteria from attacking your teeth. They act somewhat as raincoats for your teeth and keep your teeth safe from acids.
