Protection Against Tooth Decay
On your rear teeth (molars), sealants are an excellent approach to prevent tooth decay and cavities. Because they are utilized for chewing and are the hardest to reach and clean, these teeth are the most susceptible to cavities and decay. Molars first appear between the ages of 5-7, and a second set appears between the ages of 11–14. To provide early protection, it is recommended to have a sealant applied when the molars first erupt.
