At what age are dental sealants typically recommended for children?

Dental sealants are typically recommended for children around the age of 6 to 7, when their first permanent molars (6-year molars) start to emerge. Additionally, sealants are often applied to the second set of molars (12-year molars) at around age 12. These early interventions help protect these vulnerable chewing surfaces from cavity formation, reducing the risk of dental decay during a child's formative years.
