Dental sealants are plastic resin coatings that are placed on the chewing surface of the permanent back teeth to help make them resistant to decay. They reduce the risk of decay by filling in the groves of the teeth shutting out food particles that could get caught. Sealants are comfortable and easy to apply and your child is able to eat right away. According to the American Dental Association, sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of decay by nearly 80% in molars.
