Can I Get Dental Sealants?

Are you at risk for cavities on your molars? If you don’t have oral sealants applied, the answer may be yes. We assembled this post to help you learn a small bit extra about dental sealants; continue reading to improve your knowledge, and feel free to reach out to set up a visit if you’d like to receive oral sealants.

You might know that children without oral sealants are at around three times higher risk for acquiring cavities than children who have dental sealants. However, this doesn’t mean that dental sealants can only benefit children. All people can benefit from dental sealants! (Though the sooner you get them, the better.) Oral sealants are usually fitted to the molars, which appear between ages 6 and 12. If you haven’t received oral sealants by age 12 or even early adulthood, it’s still possible to get oral sealants to defend your chompers. If you’re thinking about dental sealants, talk to your dental team at Riverdale Dental Arts in The Bronx, New York, today.
