Are you susceptible to cavities on your molars? If you don’t have dental sealants on them, the answer may be yes. We put together this post to help you learn a little bit extra about dental sealants; read on to improve your understanding, and feel free to give us a call to plan a visit if you’d like to receive oral sealants.
You might know that children without oral sealants are at approximately three times greater risk for forming cavities than children who have tooth sealants. However, this doesn’t mean that dental sealants can only support children. All people can be helped by oral sealants! (Though the sooner you get them, the better.) Dental sealants are typically installed to the molars, which appear on average between ages 6 and 12. If you haven’t received dental sealants by age 12 or even adulthood, it’s still possible to get dental sealants to guard your chompers. If you’re interested in oral sealants, speak with your dental staff at Sean T. Ky in Pasadena, California, when you can.
