Tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease. Fortunately,
there is an effective way to help prevent cavities: tooth sealants. Tooth sealants,
like UltraSeal XT plus and UltraSeal XT hydro, are made of a clear or tooth-colored
material that is placed over the surface of the back teeth. They “seal” the microscopic
pits and crevices, creating a barrier against plaque and bacteria. According to
a recent report by the Surgeon General, sealants can help prevent tooth decay by
up to 70%. Using tooth sealants in combination with a good oral hygiene routine
is the best way to keep your kids’ smiles cavity free.
