What is a dental sealant?
A sealant is a thin plastic coating that protects the chewing surfaces of teeth from cavities.

When should teeth be sealed?
A sealant should be placed as soon as the permanent tooth appears in the mouth, usually around 5-6 years old, or as soon as possible.

How are dental sealants applied?
After the tooth is cleaned, the sealant is painted into the grooves of the back teeth. A special light is used to help the sealant harden.

How long do sealants last?
Sealants will usually last about five years or longer. Sealants should be checked once a year and replaced if needed.
