Dental sealant is a thin, protective coating that adheres to the chewing surface of teeth and is particularly effective in preventing decay in the back molars.
Oral hygiene due diligence is still a must, but an added measure to stop decay in its tracks can’t be a bad thing! Sealants often last several years and may even be covered by your insurance. They can be applied in one office visit. Some descriptions invite you to think of sealants as “raincoats for your teeth”.
