The CDC Says That Dental Sealants Prevent Cavities

smile teeth beautyThe CDC report indicates the majority of children still do not have dental sealants. The dental sealants are ultimately used to protect teeth from dental cavities.
Key takeaways:

  • Dental sealants are highly effective in preventing cavities in the permanent back teeth of children.
  • Children from low income families are at high risk of teeth cavities but are less likely to have dental sealants compared to those from higher income families.
  • Providing dental sealants through school-based programs to the low-income children has been projected to save up to $300 million in dental treatment costs.

State officials play an important role in increasing children’s access to school-based dental sealant programs (SPSP) in their states. Officials can target school-based sealant programs to the areas of greatest need in their state.
