Thin layers of resin that are fitted on fissures, pits, and grooves of molars to stop decay on these services are called sealants. Much of the decay on back teeth begins in the grooves and pits of chewing surfaces. It happens most often during the first few years. To help prevent the continued decay on teeth, sealants with composite resins are placed on these teeth.
The utilization of sealants is one of the most effective ways to prevent decay. It is still possible that decay may develop on and between these teeth but sealants significantly reduce the overall chance of having cavities.
