Nevada Medicaid provides medical and dental assistance to qualifying individuals and families. Those age 21 and younger are eligible to receive comprehensive dental care such as periodic and routine dental services needed for restoration of teeth, prevention, and maintenance of dental health.
CDC: Dental sealants are thin coatings that when painted on the chewing
surfaces of the back teeth (molars) can prevent cavities (tooth decay)
for many years. Sealants protect the chewing surfaces from cavities by
covering them with a protective shield that blocks out germs and food.
Once applied, sealants protect against 80% of cavities for 2 years and
continue to protect against 50% of cavities for up to 4 years.
