Another factoid from the Colgate Oral Health Report (Vol 15, Number 4, 2006, p.5) that applying pit and fissure sealants to teeth resulted in the number of cavities (caries) prevented at 62% to 92% (based on six studies and 1 meta-analysis)
Sealants are easy to apply, require no freezing and result in fewer cavities when properly maintained.
