Sealants



The tooth structure has fine grooves or pits which accumulate plaque, not because the person doesn't brush, but because they're too narrow to allow even one toothbrush bristle into them. Sealants are used to fill these small grooves on the chewing surface of the tooth that cannot be adequately cleaned.  To avoid cavities developing over time, a coating will be brushed on that seals the grooves and pits.
