Sealants are an excellent tool for preventing tooth decay in the back teeth, especially for Dallas, Granbury, and Fort Worth, and surrounding area children in Texas who have just gotten their permanent molars in. Sealants are thin plastic coatings applied directly to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to protect them from pit and fissure cavities. At Granbury Dental Center, we recommend children get sealants as soon as their first set of permanent molars has erupted, around the age of 6. This is because children do not yet have the patience or motor skills to support a proper dental hygiene routine and are at the highest risk of developing cavities. Dr. Baird, Dr. Buske, and Dr. Klassen can also give sealants to patients without any tooth decay or fillings in their molars.
