The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and The American Dental Association recognizes that sealants can play an important role in the prevention of tooth decay. Sealants are designed to fill in the pits and fissures that are part of a child’s teeth natural anatomy. It is recommended to place sealants on the molar and premolar teeth as soon as they come in. When properly applied and maintained, they can successfully protect the chewing surfaces of children’s teeth. By forming a thin covering over the pits and fissures, sealants keep out plaque and food, thus decreasing the risk of developing a cavity.
