Oral sealants are special applications of gel that shield your molars from tooth breakdown and cavities. Usually, leftover food remnants in tough-to-reach places, (like your molars) and break down into bacteria that munch away at your teeth. A dental sealant can be applied to your molars to add another layer of protection in this area commonly uncovered to bacterial acids. The oral gel, which is comprised of plastics and other oral materials, will fall into the grooves of your teeth, solidify and develop a protection that protects from cavities and tooth decay. With appropriate brushing, flossing, and visits to the dentist, the oral sealant will be able to guard your teeth and dental health for a very long time.
