Dental sealants are a preventive treatment used to protect your teeth from the damaging effects of cavities and decay. Our dentists at the practice of David B. Peterson, DDS generally provide dental sealants to children as soon as their permanent back molars erupt. Call 661-587-7002 for more information about dental sealants in Bakersfield, California, and to set up your appointment with Dr. Peterson or Dr. Hendricks.
