Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings that are painted on the biting surfaces of the back teeth. Sealants block food and bacteria from entering the narrow grooves of the teeth where decay is most likely to occur.
The Cuyahoga County Board of Health works with local schools to provide free dental sealants for 2nd and 6th grade students.
The Cuyahoga County Board of Health (CCBH) participates in the Ohio Department of Health’s dental sealant program. CCBH is a sub-grantee of the Summit County Health Department.
