How Do Sealants Work? Can Sealants Be Placed Over Cavities?

Submitted by • March 31, 2020 castlehillsdentistry.wordpress.com

Sealants are thin, plastic-coated materials applied on the surface of the tooth to protect it from tooth decay. They are usually used on premolars and molars so dental carries cannot settle in the natural fissures and grooves of the teeth, which usually are the hiding places of cavities. Also, plaque easily accumulates on the back teeth because their location usually deprives them of the protection of saliva and fluoride.
