What are
Dental Sealants?

Sealants are a safe and effective way to prevent cavities. Sealants are a barrier that are placed over the pits of back teeth in order to prevent food from sticking in the grooves, which can contribute to tooth decay and cavities.

Many dental care organizations are working in schools to provide sealants to students without needing a trip to the dentist. Signing consent forms is key to making your student eligible for sealants.

What is
Fluoride Varnish?

Fluoride is an easy way to prevent cavities at a young age. Children of all ages, especially those with high risk of early childhood caries (cavities), can benefit from fluoride varnish application. This topical treatment is a quick procedure in which fluoride is applied to the teeth with a brush by a health professional.

Fluoride varnish can be applied up to four times a year, though children with less risk of caries may not need that many applications. Fluoride varnish comes in many flavors, including bubble gum, caramel, and strawberry.

While children can receive fluoride varnish applications during regular dental visits, more and more medical providers are becoming certified to apply fluoride varnish.
