Dental sealant is applied to the tooth enamel, typically on the molars and premolars because they are the teeth most susceptible to cavities and decay. Made of plastic resin, the sealant bonds into the grooves and depressions as it quickly hardens. Once sealed, the grooves and depressions are protected from food particles that may settle in and lead to the buildup of bacteria and decay. The procedure is very simple, requires a few minutes to dry, and allows the patient to eat and drink normally after the application.
