Isaac Lin DDS Santana Park Dental Care
Studies have shown that sealants can reduce tooth decay by as much as 100 percent, so it’s no wonder that the American Dental Association recommends sealants as soon as the first adult back teeth come in at age 6 or 7. Dr. Lin will continue to apply a sealant as each back tooth comes in, up until about age 13 when most kids have gotten all of their adult molars.
Most often, dental sealants are recommended for young children and teens who may not have a regular oral hygiene routine. The application of dental sealants is a fast, simple treatment that generally requires no anesthesia or sedation, which makes it a great procedure for all ages.
