Dental sealants can be used to protect teeth from decay. Generally, tooth sealants are placed on the teeth of children and teenagers, but adults’ teeth can also be sealed when needed. During the sealing process, a plastic coating is applied to the chewing surfaces of the teeth to act as a barrier against the bacteria generally left on teeth from plaque and food. Back teeth are usually targeted since their location makes them more difficult to properly clean.
