Sealants

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings which are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to prevent decay. Because the molars have irregular surfaces with pits and grooves which tend to trap food and bacteria, sealants flow into and coat these pits and grooves so that bacteria cannot multiply and cause decay.

Though most often used as a preventive treatment for children, this can also be a consideration for adult patients, too.
