Sealants are a protective material typically placed on a child’s back teeth (molars) to help protect them from developing cavities. Molars often have deep pits and grooves that can easily trap food and bacteria, making them a common place for cavities to form. Sealants fill and smooth out these pits and grooves to help prevent cavities in the molar areas. Best of all, they are quick, easy and painless to perform in office—no anesthesia needed!
