A sealant is a protective coating that is applied to the chewing surfaces (grooves) of the back teeth (premolars and molars.) This sealant acts as a barrier to food, plaque and acid, thus protecting the decay-prone areas of the teeth. Sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of decay by nearly 80% in molars (where four out of five cavities in children are found.)
