Learn more about dental sealants and school based programs
* Dental Sealants protect the back teeth from getting cavities, yet about 60% of children ages 6-11 do not receive dental sealants.
* Dental sealants prevent 80% of cavities in the back teeth, where 90% of cavities occur.
* Children from low-income families are 20% less likely to get dental sealants than children from higher-income families.
* School Based Oral Health Programs, such as our Onsite Dental School Based Program, are especially important because we help overcome barriers families face when finding a dentist in their area.
* Sealants provided in school settings are effective too! Recent studies found that dental sealants prevent 80% of cavities for two years after application and continue to protect against 50% of cavities for up to 4 years after placement. They can be retained in the mouth for many years.
What are sealants?
•Sealants are thin coatings painted on teeth to protect them from cavities. They flow into the deep grooves of teeth and harden immediately so a child is able to chew right away. •Sealants prevent the most cavities when applied soon after permanent molars come into the mouth (around age 6 for 1st molars and age 12 for 2nd molars). •Sealants can be applied by a dentist, dental hygienist, or other qualified dental professional. This can be done in dental offices or using portable dental equipment in community settings like a school.
Why use sealants?
•Sealants are a quick, easy, and painless way to prevent most of the cavities children get in the permanent back teeth, where 9 in 10 cavities occur. •Once applied, sealants protect against 80% of cavities for 2 years and continue to protect against 50% of cavities for up to 4 years. •Sealants can eliminate the need for expensive and invasive treatments like dental fillings or crowns. •Applying sealants in schools for about 7 million low-income children who don’t have them could save up to $300 million in dental treatment costs.
