"What are dental sealants?"

Q: What are dental sealants?
A: The chewing surfaces of your child’s back teeth contain many fissures and pits. Even if your child brushes and flosses regularly, these areas are still difficult to keep clean. Plaque tends to build up here, often leading to tooth decay. Sealant is a clear or opaque plastic material that we can carefully paint onto the surfaces of the teeth. It forms a thin covering over the pits and fissures, helping to protect the teeth from plaque build-up.
