What Are Dental Sealants?

An Invisible Guardian for Your Teeth

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). Made from a plastic resin, sealants effectively shield the deep grooves and fissures of these teeth, preventing food particles and bacteria from settling and leading to cavities.
