Sealants

Sealants protect the gooved and pitted surfaces of the teeth, especially the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where most cavities in are found.  Sealants are a preventative measure we recommend on the permanent molars ("6 year" and "12 year" molars).  Sometimes Dr. Glenn or Dr. Carmen will recommend sealants on primary molars (baby molars) if the child is at high risk for decay.
