Dental Sealants

Sealants are thin layers of resin that are placed on the pits, fissures, and grooves of molars to prevent decay. The majority of decay on back teeth starts in the grooves and pits of chewing surfaces, especially during the first few years after their eruption. Sealing these surfaces with composite resins prevents this kind of decay.

Sealants are one of the most effective methods of preventing decay on the surfaces where they are placed.
