Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a type of restoration used by dentists in certain situations to protect against tooth decay. A sealant is a thin, clear, and flowable composite material applied to the chewing surface of molars, premolars and any deep grooves of teeth. These deep grooves are difficult to clean and are susceptible to decay. Sealants can be used to protect the tooth by sealing deep grooves, creating a smooth, easy to clean surface.
