Dental sealant is a plastic coating that is painted on your teeth. It attaches to your teeth, smoothing the rough edges, depressions, and grooves typically found on teeth. It gives your teeth a protective coating, helping to prevent tooth decay and cavities.
Sealants are usually done on back teeth since they are hard to reach and very irregular. Even though you brush and floss, you may miss some areas. For this reason, sealants are popular. They are used most often on children, though they can help some adults as well.
