What are sealants?
Sealants are a thin plastic covering that is applied to and molars, pre-molars and deep grooves of teeth. A good majority of most dental decay occurs in deep grooves of teeth. This is because the grooves are hard to clean even if you brush your teeth. Sealants protect the tooth by sealing the deep grooves and creating a smooth surface to clean. Sealants can last for many years and continually protect make the deep grooves of your teeth easy to clean. However, at regular dental visits you should make sure that are wearing ok and there is no chipping.
