Tooth decay is the most prevalent oral health issue Americans face, despite being preventable. Although it’s often believed to mainly affect children, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports 26% of adults in the U.S. have an untreated cavity. Not to mention, 92% have had at least one in a permanent tooth. Besides your oral hygiene and a healthy diet, you might wonder, can adults get dental sealants? Yes! While they are commonly recommended for children, you’re never too old to benefit from their protection to achieve a cavity-free smile.
