It is too easy for cavities to form in the back teeth. The molars and premolars are complicated chewing tools, full of pits and fissures. It is a bit of a challenge to brush the rear of the mouth effectively, even for adults. This makes these chewing surfaces more prone to cavities.
That’s why dental sealants for kids are recommended as soon as the permanent back teeth erupt. However, if your child has deep grooves in other primary or permanent teeth, Dr. J may suggest treating these surfaces as well.

Keep in mind, kids with dental sealants can still get cavities, but proven to be unlikely. After all, the protective coating is applied only to specific teeth. Dental sealants, twice daily brushing, flossing once a day and biannual dentist visits are vital for optimal oral health.
