Sealants give your teeth extra protection against decay and help prevent cavities.
Dental sealants are a plastic resin material that bonds in the deep grooves of teeth.
Sometimes brushing is not enough. It is nearly impossible for your toothbrush bristles to reach the bottom of the small cracks and grooves on your tooth surface. If left alone, those areas can develop tooth decay. When a tooth is sealed, the tiny grooves become smooth and are less likely to harbor the bacteria that cause tooth decay.
