Dental sealants are plastic coatings that are usually placed on the chewing surface of the permanent back teeth to help protect them from decay. The deep groves in your molars make them vulnerable to decay, Some are so deep that not even regular brushing and flossing can clean them. The leftover plaque breaks down the enamel witch causes cavities and other dental issues. With dental sealants these deep groves are filled in so that plaque can't build up, with the proper application dental sealants can last for many years.
