What are sealants?
Dental sealants are tooth-colored coatings that fill the grooves of back teeth. They prevent tooth decay by keeping out food and germs that cause cavities to grow. The Surgeon’s General report on oral health indicates that sealants can reduce decay in school children by more than 70 percent. – CDC Division of Oral Health
School-based dental sealant delivery programs provide sealants to children unlikely to receive them otherwise. In 2015, 75% of Arizona third graders needed dental sealants, and 60% of Arizona third graders were affected by tooth decay; 30% had pain, dental infection or severely decayed teeth in need of urgent treatment.
