Dental hygiene is an important aspect for children and teenagers. Although brushing and flossing remove food particles from the smooth surfaces, they cannot always remove it thoroughly from the back teeth.
Sealants are thin plastic coatings painted on the surfaces of the teeth especially back teeth to prevent tooth decay. Sealants bond with the depression of the teeth and form a protective shield over the tooth enamel. They tend to protect vulnerable tooth areas by sealing out food and plaque.
Dental sealants are recommended for children between the age of 5 and 14 years.
