Dental sealants or tooth sealants are plastic coverings that protect the chewing surfaces on your teeth. These are placed to prevent bacteria and plaque from teeth that cause tooth decay. They are mainly applied to the grooves of your back teeth because this is where decay most likely forms. Often, you will find that most of the tooth decay that occurs in children happens in the deep grooves of the teeth here it can be very hard, and almost impossible, to brush and keep clean. By applying dental sealants to the teeth it makes it so the chewing surfaces stay clear of any germs and food. The best way to protect the teeth of your child is to apply this sealant.
