Facts About Sealants

  • The most important reason for getting sealants is to avoid tooth decay
  • Sealants are thin, plastic coatings painted on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth
  • Getting sealants is simple and painless
  • Children should get sealants on their permanent molars as soon as their teeth come in
  • 6 year molars come in between the ages of 5 and 7
  • 12 year molars come in between the ages of 11 and 14
  • Teenagers and young adults who are prone to decay may also need sealants
  • Your dentist might recommend sealants for your baby’s teeth
  • Sealants last about 10 years
  • If a small cavity is covered by a sealant the decay will not spread
  • Sealants and fluoride together can prevent almost all tooth decay

Waterfall CHC currently has funding to provide free and low cost sealants to eligible children. Funding for sealants is provided by the Dental Foundation of Oregon and Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation
