Protecting Teeth with Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings, which are usually applied to the grooves of the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (usually the premolars and molars). The painted-on liquid sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel. Sealants protect the chewing surfaces from tooth decay by keeping germs and food particles out of these grooves.
