What are Sealants?

Sealants are a simple and effective way to protect your child’s teeth from decay. They are a plastic coating that is applied to the grooves and pits on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). These areas are hard to clean and are more susceptible to decay, so sealants act as a barrier, preventing plaque and food from getting trapped in these areas. Sealants can last for several years and are a great way to protect your child’s teeth, especially as they are developing and learning to brush and floss properly.
