Dental Sealant Utilization Among Rural and Urban Children
Examines the proportion of rural children who have received dental sealants, which are thin plastic materials applied to the surface of the teeth to prevent or delay the development of dental decay.
Children at greatest risk of subsequent decay because they lack dental sealants include minority children, children receiving public insurance or without insurance, and those from low-income and low-education households.
