Stop decay before it penetrates the tooth’s surface with dental sealants. Dental sealants are plastic coatings or barriers that protect the teeth against decay-causing bacteria. Usually, sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth (pre-molars and molars) where decay occurs most often. Applying a sealant to your teeth can prevent cavities and the need for fillings, which must typically be replaced every 6 to 8 years. Children especially benefit from sealants.
