Sealants are a dental treatment consisting of applying a plastic material to one or more teeth, for the intended purpose of preventing dental caries (cavities) or other forms of tooth decay.

Daily toothbrushing can help prevent tooth decay (dental caries or cavities). But that does not have much to do with the type of toothbrush. It is using fluoride toothpaste while brushing that will strengthen the teeth against tooth decay. Toothbrushing mainly removes plaque.

The molars or back teeth are most at risk of tooth decay. Bacteria can be trapped in the dents and grooves (called fissures). Dentists can apply a fissure sealant to children or young people's molars.


Dental sealants are usually applied in a dentist's office. The dentist or assistant first cleans and dries the tooth to be treated, then paints a thin layer of liquid plastic material on the pits and fissures of the tooth. After application of the plastic liquid, blue spectrum natural light is shined on the applied material for a few seconds to cure the plastic. Alternatively, some brands of sealants self-cure via a chemical process.

After curing, the plastic becomes a hard, thin layer covering the treated portions of the tooth. Despite the incredible pressures effected on teeth during chewing each day, dental sealants may remain effective for five years or longer, although sealants do wear naturally and may become damaged over time. Bacteria and food particles may eventually become entrapped under the dental sealants, and can thus cause decay in the very teeth intended to be protected.
