At Pediatric Smiles of Orem and Pediatric Smiles of Orem, we strongly recommend the placement of sealants on adult (permanent) teeth. A sealant is a safe and easy way to place a protective covering that fills in the deep grooves of our back molars. They can release fluoride onto the tooth’s enamel to help strengthen your child’s teeth and prevent cavities. Most children’s permanent molars erupt around age six (6). This is the ideal time to place them on these adult (permanent) teeth as they are not yet fully mineralized and are at high risk for developing cavities. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry supports the routine placement of sealants.
