A sealant is a plastic material that is usually applied to the chewing surface of the back teeth-premolars and molars. This plastic resin bonds into the depressions and grooves of the chewing surfaces of back teeth. The sealant acts as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
Sealants are easy to apply and can help you save money. When you consider that properly applied and maintained sealants are extremely effective in preventing pit and fissure decay, sealants are a very cost-effective measure, in both dollars and discomfort!
