Dental sealants are protective coatings applied to teeth that are at risk of decay. Although tooth decay in children has decreased, preventable decay still occurs. Combined with drinking fluoridated tap water and using a toothpaste with fluoride, sealants will virtually eliminate decay in the permanent teeth of many children. Sealants are often applied in liquid form and used prior to bonding. The ADA states that using sealants reduces the risk of cavities by 80%. Using a sealant minimizes the progression of lesions in the tooth that will lead to cavities. Sealants are safe and painless.
