Sealants
AGD Member
 

A sealant is a white or clear resin material that is placed on the top of molar or premolar tooth and sometimes on the back surface of a front tooth. It is a preventive procedure intended to seal a tooth's deep groves or fissures where residual food or plaque can get caught and possibly lead to dental decay.

 

The tooth on the left has deep grooves and fissures. Plaque and residual food debris may adhere to the top of this tooth which may lead to tooth decay.

The tooth on the right has had a sealant applied. Because the top surface is more flat, food debris easily slides off.
