Sealants are plastic coatings applied to teeth used for chewing. The purpose is to prevent cavities from forming in these teeth that have deep grooves (or fissures) which may collect plaque or bacteria.
While typically applied on children and adolescents, it is not uncommon to have them applied on adults too.
Because the plastic truly seals the teeth, it’s recommended to have a complete dental cleaning before they’re applied.
